Police Procurement North West has both a legal and moral duty to promote equality and fairness through all its business, whether that is internally amongst staff, members and volunteers or externally in its dealings its contractors and suppliers.
Ensuring the principles of equality are driven throughout our work is not only a legal obligation; it is the right and just thing to do. In the 21st Century, businesses need to adopt the equality and diversity agenda to operate effectively. Here at North Wales Police Authority we believe it makes good business sense and helps us to deliver a quality service.
As a public body we must have knowledge and understanding of the various sections of society in order to properly represent views on policing and to understand policing needs in North Wales. We strive to ensure all our business areas take account of our communities and their policing needs.
Police forces in the North West Region are fully supportive of all aspects of diversity including ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender, disability and sexual orientation. In this respect, police forces welcome expressions of interest from the ethnic minority, disabled and other diverse business communities and the voluntary sector.
