Met Police Inquiry cover

The Commission carried out an investigation into unlawful harassment, discrimination and victimisation of Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) staff who made discrimination complaints.

This investigation was launched in response to concerns about the MPS’s treatment of Black and minority ethnic (BME), female and gay officers.

It was carried out under section 20 of the Equality Act 2006, which gives the Commission powers to investigate compliance with equality legislation when it suspects that an unlawful act may have been committed.
