Scottish police recruits to face racism tests

PUBLISHED May 14, 2005

Police are to introduce complex psychological tests to stop racist applicants joining the force, The Scotsman can reveal.

The move comes amid fears that racism within the police has been "driven underground" due to heightened awareness of the issue.
Scotland's police chiefs commissioned the new psycho- metric tests in response to the BBC's Secret Policeman documentary, which exposed racism among several trainee police recruits in October 2003.
