Derbyshire Constabulary is supporting the College of Policing’s Race Action Plan.
Following extensive consultation with partners and the public, the College of Policing is developing a practical programme of change.
This will address disparities in the experiences of Black people working in or interacting with policing. The programme must be informed by those likely to be affected by it, so listening and identifying independent oversight has been an initial priority.
The Police Race Action Plan has been formed by the College of Policing and National Police Chiefs’ Council, working in collaboration with the National Black Policing Association and an independent scrutiny and oversight board, teams which together have the experience, expertise, and authority to check and challenge policing.
The main objective of the Plan is to work on making policing anti-racist. It aims to address the disparities affecting Black people and the lower levels of trust and confidence in the police among some of these communities.
The College of Policing is asking for feedback on the plan until Sunday 28 August. You can find more information on the plan and give your views on the College’s website.
