Equality statement

Northamptonshire Police is committed to equality and inclusion. Even before the Equality Act 2010 brought in a general equality duty for all public authorities, these principles were very important to us.

We have a number of initiatives in place across the force, including our hate crime champions, Independent Advisory Groups, and staff support networks. We extend our commitments to our staff and officers, as well as the public.

We are delighted to provide recruitment opportunities to the widest possible community, and we are keen to increase the diversity and representation of our workforce.

The force is keen to recruit people with a wide range of skills and experiences and an understanding of cultural issues. We have a number of support networks that are available to all officers, staff and volunteers, including:

  • Association of Muslim Police
  • Christian Police Association
  • Disability and Carers Support Network
  • Northamptonshire Black Police Association
  • Northants Police LGBT+ Network
  • Women’s Forum

Northamptonshire Police is focused on attracting, recruiting and retaining talented people. We value equality, diversity and inclusivity and welcome applications from across our communities.

We can offer flexible working for candidates with caring responsibilities and reasonable adjustments for anyone with a disability.
