Meet Sister Carol Howard, 34, a Metropolitan Police Diplomatic Protection Group (DPG) firearms officer, who helped safeguard London from terror attacks during the Olympics and protects senior politicians, government buildings and foreign embassies in London ...

... Sister Howard who has served in the force for ten years, is suing the Metropolitan Police for alleged racial discrimination, and claims her career has been held back.

 

She is alleging a senior male DPG officer has denied her equal opportunities because of her race and gender.

 

The tribunal hearing, set to take place at Central London Employment Tribunal this month, also involves allegations of bullying.

 

A source told the Evening Standard the case, which is being funded by the Police Federation, has “been going on for two years”.

 

Ms Howard, who is based at Kensington, has served in the force for more than ten years and was featured in the Evening Standard in 2012 as one of the Met’s officers who helped keep London safe during the Olympics. She has been taken off frontline duties.

 

A Met spokesman said: “Police Constable Carol Howard of the Diplomatic Protection Group is bringing an employment tribunal against the Met citing racial and sexual discrimination.

 

“The Met will robustly defend the claim.”

My question is this.

How is it that they are members of this federation when my own personal experience is that they are probably more racist towards black people than white people are ?

Have they answered you yet?

 

 

Sorry Mr Garveylives, its been a few years.  :biggrin:

 

They did get back to me in the end.

 

They gave me some blather about the organisation being an umbrella body for all officers of colour. I asked one individual in particular how he felt about it and he agreed with me that it isn't quite right. He shared my views that since we are on the bottom and looked down by all it was impossible for any one (including some serving black officers) to really take it seriously. A lot of back biting goes on in there.

 

He did say that it does have its place but that many members of the organisation are, or should I say were wary of the sincerity of some of its members who are not of black descent. When things go well, he added, they dont want to know you but when they go bad.....

"It is the second time in five years the officer, who has been with GMP for 24 years, has mounted an employment tribunal alleging racism.
 
He launched the first in 2008 after he had been the subject of a two-year internal investigation which concluded he had broken ‘tolerance and politeness’ rules by wearing a traditional African robe to work."
