Independent Police Support Group

Dear Hampshire Constabulary,

In the November issue of the force newspaper 'Frontline' there was an article on black history month with the Chief Constable and Ch Insp Alison Heydari at a 2 day event celebrating this to bring together black ethnic culture and policing.

1. There was no mention of a black police association in Hampshire. Does the force have a black police association?

2. If not why not?

3. Please provide a copy of any documents relating to the topic of setting up a BPA within Hampshire and any communications between the force and the National Black Police Association.

Yours faithfully,

S.Qureshi
