I think it’s important that we recognise the positive progress that has been made over the years. Progress has been made. I have seen attitudes change within my time as an officer and every single conversation I’ve been involved in, the issue in relation towards attitude, has always been a communication issue. It is so important we work collectively and bring people along in terms of showing how there is an issue (data) and why Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is important to policing – for communities, but also operationally. There is more to be done and I am committed to affecting change from within. Policing needs to show that change, and empower individuals to feel as though it is something they can be themselves. If we get the inclusive culture right, then diversity will grow. On the other side I think retention reflects how well any organisation sells itself… if there is a mismatch then people may leave; I intend to stay.
