About Cheshire Police
Cheshire Constabulary is an equal opportunities employer and wants to have a workforce representative of the communities that we police and serve.
As an employer, we strive to ensure that all our personnel practices, including recruitment, promotion and development are applied consistently and fairly and that the overriding principle governing selection is merit.
We are not fully representative yet and we are addressing this imbalance through a variety of initiatives and by ensuring the conduct and behaviour of our staff is beyond reproach.
Taking positive action
We promote positive action and offer support and mentoring to all staff and potential applicants and candidates from under-represented groups, including:
- People with a disability
- Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans community
- People from a black or ethnic minority background
- People from different faiths
The selection process for candidates from these under represented groups is exactly the same as for any other candidate.
The nature of policing means that we interact with people from different backgrounds every day. It is important that we understand and are sensitive to individuals’ differences so we can provide an appropriately tailored policing service.
