Paul Wilson

Paul Wilson retired from London’s Metropolitan Police as a superintendent after 31 years of public service. He played a pivotal role in the creation of the UK’s first Black Police Association, and was responsible for a significant number of reports centred around the issue of institutional racism and police service delivery to black and minority ethnic communities, as well as a plethora of media appearances and contributions on the topic.

As the first black British recipient of the Fulbright police fellowship award, and the author of a report and subsequent oral testimony on institutional racism at the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, Paul’s authority on the subject is beyond question. Now, he uses his knowledge of and experiences with this subject to give a personal recount of the proliferation of, and slow progress in, the fight against  racism in British policing.
