My right honourable friend the Home Secretary set 10-year race employment targets for police forces in 1999. Police forces' targets and their progress against them are published every year in Race Equality: The Home Secretary's Employment Targets. The latest report, for 2007-08, which was published on 20 November 2008, can be found on the Home Office website, at www.homeoffice.gov.uk/about-us/publications/staff-equality-targets/.
