Rejected petition End mistreatment of Black communities by implementing a new UK policing strategy

We petition the government to review its policing strategy to create equity of treatment of individuals in Black, Asian, and minority ethnic communities. We ask the government to review current evidence, create dialogue, take action, track progress, and continually revise its strategy.

More details

Recent events have created a desire to stand with Black communities and reflect on policing disparities in the UK. In particular, the disproportionate use of force, stop-and-search, and detainment under the Mental Health Act.

We call on the government to: Use the already robust evidence and recommendations in the Lammy, Angiolini, and the Adebowale Review; Update recommendations to tackle ongoing concerns; Create a transparent dialogue with Black communities; Revise strategies after five years
