PCC statement on Black History Month

A statement from PCC Mark Shelford on the start of Black History Month.

“Today is the first day of Black History month, which provides us with the opportunity to celebrate the black community, reflect and discuss some important issues related to the work that we do.

“Throughout the month of October, my office will be shining a light on work that is happening across Avon and Somerset in important areas, such as representation in the police workforce and tackling disproportionality, in order to build the most inclusive police force in the country. We will also be sharing content from partner organisations and inviting guests to discuss policing issues which affect Black, Asian, Mixed and other minority communities.”
