Police force praised for its workplace diversity

Surrey Police has been ranked as one of the top police forces nationwide for workplace diversity.

The ranking makes it the fourth highest force in The Excellence in Diversity Awards: Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers list.

The list investigates whether organisations have representation at management, senior, executive and board level, from across all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & religion. Surrey Police’s Association of Culture and Ethnicity provides a mentoring scheme for applicants from these diverse communities, guiding them through the recruitment process.

We are extremely proud to have been awarded this position in the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers. This ranking shows our dedication to creating a diverse workforce and we will continue to work towards maintaining an inclusive organisation that is reflective of the communities we serve.”– GAVIN STEPHENS, TEMPORARY DEPUTY CHIEF CONSTABLE, SURREY POLICE

Overall, Surrey Police ranked #28 out of all organisations in the list, which included British Airways, Ministry of Justice and ASDA.
