Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written answer received 19/07/13:

The table below gives a summary of police officers at the rank of Chief Superintendent or above, showing female and BME officer strength as of 31 May 2013.

The table below gives a summary of senior police staff, showing female and BME director strength as of 31 May 2013.

I am committed to the representation of female and BME officers at all ranks within the MPS.

I will also continue to push for direct entry, for which pilots are taking place, which will allow skilled and experienced individuals, particularly those Londoners from BME backgrounds, to join the police at a higher rank than police constable.
