A senior Muslim policeman has said the Metropolitan Police's (Met) recruitment process is putting off young Muslims.

National Black Police Association President and Met Police Commander Ali Dizaei said the process should be "non- biased and fair".

He said some recruits were discouraged because they come under suspicion if they frequently visited some countries.

A Met Police spokesman said all staff regardless of background underwent the same vigorous security procedures.

Speaking to BBC London, Commander Dizaei said: "Just because someone visits a country several times does not necessarily make them a risk.

"We have to be quite careful to ensure our vetting process is non-biased and are fair and get the best people for the jobs without compromising national security."

BBC London's Home Affairs Correspondent Guy Smith said the National Association of Muslim Police told him another concern was that Muslim officers found it difficult to join SO15, the Met's counter-terrorism command, for which you need to be a detective.

Of the 300 current Muslim officers serving in the Met, half have less than three years experience.

It comes as Home Secretary Jacqui Smith announced funding for an extra 300 police jobs to target radicalisation.

She said it was not possible to "arrest our way out of the terrorist threat" and the government aimed to stop people becoming terrorists in the first place.

Aye.
iv'e seen some newspaper articals a few years back where there were complaints about the Police recruiting pro-rata more muslims than "Whites" in the areas with high "ethnic" populations.

It does make me think, are the residents of these areas only going to respect a muslim officer?
Will they refuse to co-operate with a "white" officer?
Is'nt this another sign that Multiculturalism, instead of being as it should be , with all people considering themselves citizens are being encouraged to think of themselves as Muslims first and foremost.
How can a society intergrate when enclaves of a religion are gathering in groups and needing their own police force taken from "Their own people".
Why cant we all just live together as people and not our religion?

The British Royal Family would need to stop committing global terrorism and robbery and clean up it's image as a pharaonic mafia for anyone with good intentions intending to work for them to keep a good reputation for very long.
