Equality Objectives for Northumbria Police
In March 2013, the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable developed the Joint Equality Objectives in line with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duty Regulations, 2011).
Through public consultation and supported by other research in preparation for the police and crime plan, the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable identified four equality objectives which are to:
Provide a fair, responsive and appropriate service to the communities we serve;
Engage with all communities by listening and responding appropriately to increase confidence;
Have a workforce that is more representative and knowledgeable of the communities we serve and that is reflected across the organisation;
Monitor, analyse and improve equality standards and performance across the organisation.
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Northumbria Police will review these objectives annually.
