The information provided in Appendix 11 is from entries on the MPS discipline recording system recorded between 01/04/2009-31/03/2014:

 

  • Where the Allegation Type was ‘Discrimination’ sub type ‘Race’
  • Staff Type is ‘Police Officer’ or ‘Special’

 

MOPAC is taking an interest in this issue and the Home Secretary is currently reviewing police complaints.
