The Mayor

The MPS has assured me that it will be looking closely at the National Superintendent Association Action Plan to determine what can be learned.

The MPS already conducts staff surveys and it is currently analysing the latest survey from earlier this year in order to inform their future equality and diversity strategies and identify practical steps to improve the working arrangements for all MPS officers and staff.
