Derbyshire Constabulary has reaffirmed its commitment to becoming an anti-racist service following national feedback to the Police Race Action Plan to help improve policing for Black people.
The Police Race Action Plan was published in draft form in May 2022, followed by a public survey, which invited members of the public, individual police officers and staff, and representatives from policing and other organisations to share their thoughts on the Plan.
The survey - one of the biggest of its kind in policing – received more than 5,000 responses, of which 10 per cent were from Black or Black British or mixed Black heritage respondents.
Derbyshire joined every police force in the England and Wales to collate feedback on the Plan from officers and staff, stakeholders, and communities, to gather a wide range of views from across policing.
