Equality and Diversity
We value and respect diversity and we are committed to promoting good community relations and equal opportunities among all our employees.
Equality and Diversity Statement of intent:
“Wiltshire Police will eliminate unlawful discrimination and will ensure that no individual or group is directly or indirectly discriminated against for any reason. We will actively promote our core values and behaviours to ensure we are an organisation where diversity is valued and respected so that we understand and work with our communities to make them safe. We will create a culture that values difference and which recognises the benefits a diverse workforce brings to the service we provide to our communities.”
Valuing Diversity and Inclusion
We have a strong ethos on equality, diversity and inclusion both within the organisation and with regard to the services we provide.
We are committed to creating a police service that is representative of the communities we serve, and believe that in this way the Force will be better able to reach our aim to have:
“Trained and motivated staff who think, deliver and promote equality and fairness to the public and each other.”
We work hard to:
- Identify environments where under representation exists
- Review policy, processes and perceptions in order to dismantle barriers
- Develop initiatives that promote equality and fairness both internally and externally, that further the Police and Staff Attraction, Recruitment, Retention and Progression Strategy
- Monitor and evaluate development.
All members of the Force have responsibility to support these actions.
We actively encourage all members of under-represented groups to attend our recruitment awareness workshops for Specials, PCSOs and Police Officer roles – members of your family or friends are welcome to come along.
