Racism against David Blair

This page, when complete, will portray the story of a unique award-winning black ex-West Yorkshire Police Officer who began his career by serving both Queen and Country, at the age of 16, by joining the British Army.

Following a successful career in the Army, David Blair joined West Yorkshire Police and served his community for 17 years during which he was awarded with Commendations for saving a drowning man and for an investigation which led to the confiscation of an arsenal of guns and ammunition.

This officer was falsely arrested when on sick leave having previously raised a grievance for racial discrimination. He attempted to commit suicide by throwing himself of a bridge. West Yorkshire Police did not help him through this difficult time. The Officer was later cleared at Court but was still dismissed by the force after the Professional Standards Department falsified evidence against him.
