Romany constable blows the whistle on police prejudice towards travellers

PUBLISHED May 3, 2005

One of Britain's few Romany police officers has spoken out against racism in the force, complaining that he has suffered "awful" treatment at the hands of the police.

PC Steve Dean said that the police hostility he has experienced when out of uniform explains the difficulty the police have in winning over hostile traveller communities.
