We want to be the best at understanding and responding to our community’s needs. To do this we need the very best candidates to apply to become part of our policing family. We need candidates from a wide range of backgrounds so that we can better understand the communities we serve. Policing is, and will always remain an essential part of creating safer communities. Our officers and staff are rewarded with fulfilling and varied careers.
We have a strong commitment to equality and diversity both within the organisation and in the service we provide. Our aim is to promote and achieve a fully inclusive workforce to reflect the communities we serve. We recognise and value individuals’ unique differences and we want South Wales Police to continue to develop as an organisation, which represents and reflects our communities.
In order to provide a high level of service, we encourage applications from under-represented communities and we are proud to pursue a policy of ‘positive action’ in an attempt to achieve this.
Positive action refers to a range of measures and initiatives that employers can lawfully take to encourage individuals from under-represented communities to apply.
