Herts Police Want More Ethnic Staff & Officers

27 November 2014, 06:00

Hertfordshire Police are running a public open evening tonight specifically to encourage people from minority ethnic groups to join the force.

The Constabulary says its very keen to improve links with minority communities to ensure staff and police officers reflect all of the communities it serves.

Herts Police say therefore people from all backgrounds are being encouraged to attend tonight to find out about employment opportunities within the force - particularly those from minority ethnic communities.
Senior police officers from the Command Team will be available to discuss how they work, what they do and what support they offer to employees. The force say they're also recruiting Communications Operators and tours of the Force Communications Room will also be available.
Workforce Planning Superintendent Cath Akehurst, said: 

"The event aims to increase our engagement with minority communities to assist in developing a more representative workforce and will cover both police officer and police staff recruitment.

We welcome representatives of community groups, families of potential recruits from minority communities and those who are interested in understanding how we can work together to improve the diversity of our workforce."
