He said: "There is great disappointment and anger at all levels within the police service that a small group of officers, including one from Cheshire, have let us all down.
"Racist conduct is abhorrent in any form, whether inside or outside the service and strenuous efforts have been made by the Cheshire Constabulary and other forces to challenge such racism."
He said the programme underlined the commitment of police trainers to challenge racial stereotypes but conceded that measures currently in place to root out racist attitudes were insufficient.
He said the force would review its recruitment procedures.
