Launch of campaign to recruit more officers from ethnic minorities

Thu, 13 August 2015

Northamptonshire Police has launched a campaign to recruit more officers from ethnic minorities. Latest figures show that across Northamptonshire, eight per cent of residents describe themselves as being black or minority ethnic (BME). But within Northamptonshire Police, the number of police officers who describe themselves as BME is just under four per cent. To help the force more accurately reflect the community it serves, a campaign has been launched to recruit more police officers from a variety of different backgrounds, as well as more female officers.

As an ethnic minority officer after 12 years have resigned be careful if you are ethnic as certain police services still are very institutionally racist. I thought that I could make a difference but it is to much to take.

@Anonymous It is really sad to hear things like this, but in reallity it is the truth. Institutional racism still exist because it is embeded rooted within the organisation.
