London Mayor to review police anti-racism measures.

London, May 31 ( ANI ): London mayor Boris Johnson will launch a review of measures introduced to eradicate racism within the city's police force.

The review will look at measures put in place as a result of the race and faith inquiry, set up by the mayor in 2008.

Johnson will launch the review alongside Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe, The Daily Express reports.

In 2008, the mayor commissioned a Race and Faith Inquiry looking into racism in the force.

As a result of the inquiry, the Met said it would open up senior positions to people from different backgrounds, even if they had not started working as a constable.

Johnson said he wanted the force to 'build better relations with the communities it serves'.

"The Commissioner and I are in absolute agreement that racism within the Met, whose officers and staff are in a special position of trust, will not be tolerated," the report quoted him, as saying.

"We are committed to driving forward the changes needed to ensure the Met provides an excellent level of service to the entire community," he added. ( ANI )
