Police: Gender

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what research his Department has undertaken to compare the effects of mixed gender and single gender frontline policing in local communities. (144070)

Home Office research programme on policing has not included any research to compare the effects of mixed gender frontline policing in local communities and single gender frontline policing. The National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) has operational responsibility in this area and I am advised by the NPIA that they currently have no plans to carry out research into effects of mixed gender and single gender frontline policing.
