Wiltshire Police Needs Your Views On Equality And Diversity In Policing


We are seeking views from the public and partner agencies on our proposed new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy for Wiltshire and Swindon to help us improve policing services across the county.


We would like to hear from you on how we can be more inclusive, deliver excellent services and provide fair opportunities for all – the diverse communities we serve and the people we employ.


We are holding two public meetings in October where you will be able to hear our proposals and importantly, tell us what matters most to you about your local police service.


The key questions are:

• How can we build stronger relationships with our communities?

• What do you think our priorities should be to ensure greater diversity in Wiltshire Police?

• How can we work better with partners to tackle disparity in how we deliver services?


Our new Strategy describes how we intend to meet our obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). It sets out our commitment to promoting equality, in line with the principles of equal treatment and equal opportunity. We are also reviewing our Equality Objectives to confirm they remain fit for purpose.
