Positive Action

Positive Action Group
Positive Action Group
To support the increase in Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) representation, we work closely with our Safer Neighbourhood Teams to engage with people who were looking at joining our police family, whether as officers, staff, Special Constables or PCSOs. 

We are working closely with the College of Policing on their initiative BME Progression 2018, which aims to proactively work with police forces in developing and improving;

  • Progression and specialisation
  • Recruitment
  • Retention.

We are also developing action plans to ensure all our Positive Action initiatives encompass all under-represented groups, such as disability and sexual orientation. It is important that our workforce represents the communities we serve and that we have a deeper understanding of our communities.

Our Independent Advisory Groups and staff support network members have made significant and valuable contribution to raising awareness with our newly recruited police officers of issues such as cultural awareness, race and religion, sexual orientation, disabilities and transgender matters.
