A member of one of Nottinghamshire’s black and minority ethnic (BME) communities has told Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tapping that there needs to be better engagement between communities and the police.
Mr Tipping was told: “There needs to be a better understanding both ways, and we need to see a cultural change.”
The comments came in response to the Commissioner’s request for their views on how policing in the county could be improved and what they thought of his plans so far.
Currently working on his forthcoming Police and Crime Plan, Mr Tipping told the meeting: “I want to improve BME communities’ experiences relating to policing by engaging with you to find out how things can be improved.
“I want to ensure transparency in stop and search powers and to improve the recruitment and retention of officers from BME backgrounds.”
