The tables provided show the number of police officer and police staff joiners,
by joining type, for the Metropolitan Police Service from 2009/10 to 2013/14.
The tables include minority ethnic and female breakdowns.

Of the 79 people who provisionally accepted a place on the Metropolitan
Police’s innovative new programme Police Now, 16% are from an ethnic minority
background (correct as of January 2015).
