Black and Blue: CTBI WebinarBlack and Blue web page image

Join CTBI for the much-anticipated webinar ‘Black and Blue’, which will enable you to hear from present and former serving Black police officers about their views on the Black Lives Matters movement, institutional racism, ‘stop and search’ and related law and order issues.

This webinar will discuss issues such as the decisions behind initially joining the police service; whether this decision impacted relationships with family and friends, and how they have been viewed by their White colleagues.

There will be contributions from:

  • Dr Leroy Logan MBE, former superintendent in the Metropolitan police and a former chair of the Black Police Association. Leroy is also the author of Closing Ranks: My Life as a Cop.
 
  • Janet Hills, a Detective Sergeant in the Metropolitan Police Service. Janet is the first Female Chair Met Black Police Association and was also the National Black Police Association President from 2015-2017.
 
  • Bevan Powell MBE, the former chair of the Black Police Association and current Methodist Church Secretary for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

The session will be chaired by the Venerable Dr Rosemarie Mallett, Archdeacon of Croydon and Rev Les Isaac OBE, CEO of the Ascension Trust. They will take the participants through their paces and find out, among other issues, how their faith informs their work and commitment to justice, fairness and integrity.
 

There will also be space in the programme for you to put your questions to such an august panel of participants.

Register here for what promises to be an hour and a half of stimulating, inspiring conversation.
