Police: Discrimination

Volume 711: debated on Wednesday 3 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord West of Spithead on 5 March (WA 185), whether the independent review of the national police diversity staff support associations will involve consultation with individual police officers of all ranks; when the review is likely to be completed; and whether its findings will be published. [HL3796]

The independent review of the national diversity staff support associations (DSSA) has been received and the report is being considered by the Equality and Diversity Strategy Board (EDSB) which commissioned the review. The equality impact assessment report sets out the formal consultation process undertaken, including face-to-face interviews with national DSSA representatives; questionnaire surveying of national DSSAs and key stakeholder groups; a series of interviews with EDSB members and a formal consultation meeting with the national DSSAs prior to completing the final report. A summary of the review will be available when a final decision on the recommendations has been made.
