Association of Muslim Police
Aims of the Association
The Association of Muslim Police (AMP) aims to:
- assist Muslims in the police service to observe their faith, and to promote understanding of Islam within the police service & the wider community.
- provide a forum for Muslims in the police, and support their religious and welfare needs, with a view to improving their immediate working environment and retaining them in the Service.
- assist in the recruitment and retention of Muslim staff, and to assist in the creation of a fair and just working environment for all cultural minorities’
The AMP is formally recognised by the Metropolitan Police Service. It is active in pursuing faith-friendly policies and has been instrumental in ensuring the provision of many facilities to the benefit of Muslim staff, including Hijaab for female officers, ability to wear Islamic/cultural dress when not in uniform, provision of Halaal food and facilities for Salaah (Islamic Prayer).
The AMP is available to provide support and advice to Muslim candidates. Those wearing Hijaab and considering a career in the police service are advised to contact the AMP for further specialist advice.
Membership enquiries are welcome from police and civil staff candidates including PCSO’s, traffic wardens and cadets. Associate membership enquiries from spouses and family members are also welcome.
All enquiries, including media enquiries should be emailed to email@example.com.
