Diane Abbott responds to survey on sexual harassment of Police staff

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to a new survey by Unison into sexual harassment of Police staff, said:

“UK Police forces need to ask themselves serious questions about the environment in which this level of harassment is able to thrive.

“More needs to be done to ensure there is a clear zero tolerance policy on harassment and bullying. Police staff should have a safe and supportive environment to voice concerns, with assurances that cases will be dealt with effectively.”
