Diversity and Equality
Diversity and equality are not just words: they are critical to our ability to police London effectively and have implications for everything that we do. London's diversity is fundamental to making it a great city and its police service should reflect that diversity. Like all public authorities in London, the Metropolitan Police Service can only succeed by recognising and responding to the needs of the diverse communities it serves, from making neighbourhoods safer to policing major public events.
Our diversity and equality strategy
Our strategy drives our response to addressing the critical issues of diversity and equality through delivery of fair and responsive services, community engagement, development of our workforce and working culture and a robust governance structure.
Our Community Engagement Commitment explains what to expect from our community engagement processes and lists a number of principles explaining how we will improve and develop our community engagement work.
The MPS has published specific and measurable equality objectives as required by the Equality Act 2010
