Petition Review the use of force against BAME people by the police

Recent events have brought to light existing concerns about potential abuse of power and misconduct within the police. The use of neck restrain chokehold has previously led to several young black men having died. Police officers must be trained better.

More details

The Government needs to investigate why force is used on minorities disproportionately. BAME people are twice as likely to die from restraint. Although the Lammy Review has highlighted these disparities, inequality is still an issue and one method of preventing harm, which the Government should consider, could be to prohibit the use of neck restraint as it is ineffective & dangerous.
