As a member of the City of London Police’s Professional Standards and Integrity Committee I recently asked the Assistant Commissioner about the number of Covid19 relates fines and warnings issued. Young BAME members of the public are more often fined. We need to reflect on this and see how we can work together.

The City of London Corporation has also established a new working party to consider what the organisation is doing to tackle racism in all its forms.
The Tackling Racism Working Party assess whether the City Corporation could take any further action to promote economic, educational and social inclusion. It will consider how to respond to historical issues, such as statues and monuments, and look at policing in the City.
People are being asked to give their views on statues, street and building names and other landmarks in the City of London with historic links to slavery and racism in all its forms.
