Gloucestershire Constabulary recognises the benefits of increasing diversity across our workforce. We know that we are ‘Better Together’ as individuals, teams and with our communities and partner agencies.
Our Better Together Team provide positive action support to people from underrepresented and diverse communities who are considering a career in policing.
The team aim to break down barriers between the organisation and the diverse communities it serves, by identifying areas where the organisation may need to improve.
We require the very best individuals from society to join us to help make us a representative and diverse workforce that is reflective of the communities we serve.
We aim to be an employer of choice and encourage those from a diverse background to step up, make a difference and join us.
As part of our approach, in July 2020, the Constabulary established a Community Legitimacy Panel made up of members of the county’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities. It will look at areas such as recruitment and promotion, as well as helping the Constabulary develop policies around stop and search and the use of force.
