The NBPA recognise that Boris Johnson’s remarks aimed at our Muslim communities reflect onto BAME communities.
We do not condone words that target any persons, faith or religion and are disappointed in Boris Johnson, a senior politician and former mayor of London.
We offer our support and are aware of how this may make certain members of our communities feel.
Black Police Associations (BPA), in Constabularies throughout the UK are made up of officers and staff from communities who are effected by the consequences of the comments made.
We are there to support victims who may be subjected to hate crime and can be utilised as a third party to report it.
