Met Police officers 'fear reprisals' over discrimination complaints

 

An Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) study finds that black police officers in the Met ‘expect to be victimised and fear reprisals’ if they complain about discrimination. A reluctance to admit mistakes, poor record-keeping and misplaced loyalty was among the poor practices, but no laws were breached, the EHRC found. The Met said it was working "to tackle the perceptions of victimisation". In total 68 employment tribunal claims were brought against the Met last year, of which it lost three. Complicating factors identified by the Commission in its study were a police culture of "looking after your own", and the Force's "painful history" over racism.
