Chris Cutland, Nottinghamshire's Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, is to address a ground-breaking recruitment seminar designed specifically for black and minority ethnic members of the community who are interested in joining Nottinghamshire Police.
Ms Cutland, who, along with the Commissioner Paddy Tipping, has spearheaded a project designed to provide a fair and equal policing service that embraces the diverse communities across the City and the County, will one of the guest speakers at the seminar, which is to be held at God's Vineyard Church, Derby Road, Nottingham.
She said:“Both the Commissioner and I are clear in our goal to see a workforce that is reflective of our communities. It’s encouraging to see the efforts that are being made to attract the undoubted talent within our black and minority communities, so that we can enjoy a truly representative workforce.
“I am particularly grateful for the support this event has received from local community groups and faith leaders. While I am aware of the progress that Nottinghamshire Police has made to increase the number of recruits from black and minority backgrounds, we know there is more to do. This seminar is a big step in the right direction.
“I hope that people will take the opportunity to come along to see what opportunities are out there for them and, importantly the support that is available should they wish to apply. Like the Chief Constable, I hope to meet a great many potential recruits, people who will make a big contribution to both policing and their communities.”
The Seminar starts at 10am on Saturday 12 October. For further information or to register please contact Joanne Ratchford on 101 ext 800 2432
