What minority ethnic police officers face on the job – and how to fix policing culture

Retrieved on: 
Friday, July 19, 2024

Recent police employment tribunal data showed significant increases in claims of racism brought by current or former London Met police officers.

Key Points: 
  • Recent police employment tribunal data showed significant increases in claims of racism brought by current or former London Met police officers.
  • Black, Asian and other minority ethnic officers report frequently experiencing blatant racism, stereotypes and hostility from fellow officers.
  • Now, the National Black Police Association has withdrawn its support for chief constables’ race action plan, which was introduced in 2020.

Policing culture

  • Police culture is the set of norms that set the tone, expectations and expected behaviours for cops.
  • But the nature of policing means street police culture is most influential on police behaviour.
  • Much research has found that street police culture in particular is characterised by racism, aggression, escalation, intolerance, hierarchy, misogyny, homophobia and alienation from marginalised communities.

Recruiting diverse forces

  • My new book Police Diversity: Beyond The Blue compares police officers’ experiences of diversity and discrimination in the UK and US over several decades.
  • Because they are seen as outsiders, they often have to work extra hard to prove their worth as cops.
  • Worst of all, they may not be backed up by other officers on dangerous service calls.

Rebuilding trust

  • For years, studies have shown that minority communities have lower levels of trust and confidence in England and Wales police than other groups.
  • Much of this is due to discrepancies like higher rates of stops and search in minority communities.
  • Building a more diverse police force – and fast – is essential to reducing racism in police institutions and building new cultural norms.
  • A temporary, ten-year positive discrimination plan in England and Wales policing could follow Northern Ireland Police Service’s successful 50:50 hiring model.
