A British police chief has lamented the fact that her leadership team is white, saying it is “not OK that we look like we do”.
“If we look at the Chief Officer group of this constabulary, we are half female and have all sorts of other diverse characteristics – but we are all white,” said Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney.
“I’m really aware of that and so I’m doing what I can to mitigate in the short term and I have a very detailed plan, which also national policing has as well, to try and shift that balance,” she vowed.
Chief Constable Pinkney’s remarks followed the dismissal of several officers from the Serious Organised Crime Unit on the force for making politically incorrect comments at work.
The “toxic” group were bugged after a complaint, and found to have, among other things, joked about killing Albanians with a “nerve agent”, sang ‘Buffalo Soldier’ by Bob Marley to black colleague PC Solomon Koranteng, and to have referred the part of the office PC Koranteng shared with another black officer as “African corner”.
