Sislin Fay Allen: Britain's first black policewoman honoured with lifetime achievement award

Sislin Fay Allen, 82, joined the Metropolitan Police in 1968, paving the way for other women of colour.


Britain's first black policewoman has been honoured November 2020 with a lifetime achievement award at a ceremony celebrating black, Asian and minority ethnic female officers.


Sislin Fay Allen, 82, joined the Metropolitan Police in 1968. Now living in Jamaica, Mrs Allen said she feels "honoured and humbled" after being awarded the accolade, 50 years since she first made history.


Mrs Allen said: "I wasn't expecting anything like this. I am really humbled by it all. I want to thank everyone in policing who has given me this. "It has been such a long time but it is better to be late than never. I remain happy that I did what I did."


The home secretary has praised Mrs Allen's legacy in policing.
