Diversity Statement

We are only as good as our people. It’s really important to us that our officers and staff can be themselves in the workplace. And we believe that as an organisation we’ll benefit from the variety of thinking, approach and skills that diversity can bring; all of which helps us to deliver a better policing service.

We have worked really hard to create a safe, open and inclusive culture. We have a range of staff networking groups to provide specific support and advice and we are also proud to be a member of Stonewall and Disability Confident, and to be aligned with the Armed Forces Covenant and the HeForShe movement.

We value the differences that people bring from all backgrounds and communities so, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, disability, social status or religious beliefs, we would love to hear from you.
