Holding answer received on 21 July 2015

This information is not held centrally by the Home Office.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) publishes quarterly data on police complaints for each force, which includes a breakdown of the nature of allegations recorded. The category of ‘Discriminatory Behaviour’ includes incidents of racism.

The IPCC also holds a more detailed breakdown of the category information, but does not hold information of the disciplinary outcomes subsequent to the complaints. This information may be held by the force itself.

I have asked the IPCC to write to the Honourable Member with the information it has available and will arrange for a copy to be placed in the House Library.
