Answer

1a+ 2a. We have identified no complaints from police officers of racism being made against another police officer.

1b,c,d + 2b,c,d. Not applicable.

3. When a complaint is made it can contain a number of different allegations against a number of different officers. Therefore the following figures are not indicative of the number of officers complained about.

The number of complaints against police officers which contained allegations of discriminatory behaviour that were made year on year as specified are as follows:

09/04/2013 to 08/04/2014   = 37

09/04/2014 to 08/04/2015   = 29

09/04/2015 to 09/04/2016   = 23

3a+c. When a public complaint is received or a misconduct matter raised then there will always be a level of investigation.

3b. None of the complaints investigated were found to be proven.
