Appointment of an equality and diversity officer
Awareness courses run in certain regions

Equality and diversity officers
At the moment only 25% of the police are women
Only 3% of the fire brigade are women
1.8% of the RAF are ethnic minorities
4.4% of police are ethnic minorities
Attitudes are changing in the public services but it is important they do more by encouraging more minorities to apply
Look at as many pictures of the Army, Police and Fire Brigade:
How many women are there?
How many ethnic minoritie are there?
M3 - Consider how well the methods to promote equality and diversity work both in society and within the police
These methods help towards making the public services diverse and promoting equality however there are still inequality issues which tells me the methods used are not as effective as they could be. Some of the issues are:
Metropolitan police still racist.
D2 - Evaluate the effectiveness of the methods
All the public services try to use a variety of different methods to ensure diversity. I think the most effective method is positive action. This makes people who might not apply for certain services think about them and it should result in more people applying and more people working for the public services.
The policies that are in place are important but are to complicated. I think a lot of people would not understand all the different policies that are in place so would not know what there rights are.
D2 - Evaluate the effectiveness of the methods used
Recommendation for change:
Produce easier to follow policies
More education on careers in the services in ethnic minority areas
Promote success stories of females in the services
Stronger punishments for prejudice
What are your opinions on this?
