Stonewall – the lesbian, gay and bisexual charity – named the force as the best performing for the LGB community, coming 15th in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2013.
Inspector Julie Fry, who chairs the force’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) Resource Group, said:
“Our proven track record and consistent high scores in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index is something the whole force should be proud of.
“Our success is driven by those passionate and capable individuals who take on roles additional to their day jobs. It’s these Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers, Resource Group members and Sexual Orientation champions who are helping to improve the service we deliver to our communities and ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender police officers and staff are properly supported in the organisation…Recognition from Stonewall is the icing on the cake.”
Chief Constable Alex Marshall was also named Stonewall’s LGB Champion of the Year.
Recognised for his commitment to LGBT staff and communities, he said he was ‘surprised to [receive]the award’ and is ‘very proud’ of his team. He is the force’s Fairness and Equality Champion and has previously been recognised as a ‘Straight Ally’ by Stonewall.
