London’s top cop has been told that a stringent 40 percent of new recruits to the Metropolitan Police must be drawn from the ethnic majority as the city’s government looks at ways to combat what the Asian-led regime describes as racism and discrimination.
The UK’s biggest police force has taken the knee and meekly accepted plans to introduce a minimum quota for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) recruits.
It is anticipated that the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, will unveil the new race action plan on Friday. The move is the result of long negotiations between the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, and the Met police.
Khan tweeted: ’There remains a great deal of work to do to unpick the conscious and unconscious bias and systemic racism that still exists in our public institutions and our society as a whole. Our Action Plan will introduce the biggest policing reforms seen in generations.’
London’s police force has the most BAME officers in the UK regional police forces but still underrepresents the vast ethnic minority community in the British capital. Currently, 55 percent of London’s population is BAME, while only 15.4 percent of the Met’s officers are of BAME backgrounds.
In 2019, the Met’s head of human resources, Clare Davies, told reporters that ‘it would take over 100 years to be representative of London.’
Many were keen to point out that more than 87% of the UK population is white despite a high BAME population in the capital and notably its Eastern districts.
While some people showed their support for the race action plan, the initiative was condemned on Twitter.
Some slammed Khan’s scheme, with one user questioning whether it is a form of racism itself and whether there could be a positive outcome.
Previous attempts to introduce more diversity on the frontline of London’s police force has failed. The Met police saw a considerable drop in the number of BAME candidates applying to join the force and passing its competency-based questionnaire during its 2013 recruitment campaign.
The Met police have come under pressure in 2020, a year of protracted civil rights campaigning and mass Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd.
Protests were organised in at least 260 locations around Britain. A number of monuments linked to the UK’s colonial past was also targeted by the BLM protesters, and in some places, clashes broke out between protesters and right-wing groups who claimed they wanted to protect the statues.
London’s police force has frequently been the target of protests and campaigns, with demonstrators accusing officers of racial profiling. Reports show that black people are six times more likely than white people to be stopped by police when driving. Source
