The Police Race Action Plan has been developed jointly by the College of Policing and the National Police Chiefs’ Council with input from stakeholders, including the National Black Police Officers’ Association, and the Independent Scrutiny and Oversight Board Chair, as well as the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
Our vision is for a police service that is anti-racist and trusted by Black people.
The Plan seeks to create an anti-racist culture, mind-set, values, and behaviours within policing. This will inform all operational policing practice, improving the experience and outcomes for Black people. It will enable the lived experience of our Black communities, officers, and staff to have a direct influence on our policies and practices going forward.
This survey offers respondents the opportunity to contribute views that will shape the Police Race Action Plan and its ongoing implementation. We welcome views from anyone with an interest in this area, including anti-racist organisations, community groups, members of the public, and police officers and staff.
The College of Policing will analyse feedback from this survey and the responses we receive will inform decisions on any future development and implementation of the Plan. We will not be able to respond directly to respondents regarding the feedback they provide, but we commit to publishing a response on the NPCC and College of Policing websites. All survey responses are held confidentially and reporting on individual responses will be at an aggregate, anonymous level.
