Staff support networks

Warwickshire Police operates a number of support networks to assist our officers and staff on issues of race, gender, disability and sexuality.

B-ME Network

The B-ME Network was re-established in 2018, with the aim of improving the working environment of minority ethnic staff within Warwickshire Police, based on fairness with a view to enhancing the quality of service to our communities.

Christian Police Association

Christian Police Association

Founded in 1883 by Catherine Gurney, the Christian Police Association (CPA) has active branches in the majority of police forces in the UK, including Warwickshire Police.

Offering encouragement, support, and a national voice for Christians in the police service, the CPA aims to build bridges between the Christian community and the police, and in the tradition of practical Christianity, promote its good news message to colleagues and the wider community we serve. This involves working with a number of national charities and organisations, such as the many Street Pastor initiatives across the force who patrol the night time economy and help protect the vulnerable from harm.

Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulty Network

Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulty Network

The Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) Network aims to support employees within the workplace. The group was established with the aims and objectives of representing the estimated 600+ staff in the organisation who are 'neurodiverse'. Neurodiversity is a concept where neurological differences are as recognised and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labelled dyspraxia, dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyscalculia, autistic spectrum and others.

The network has set out to educate, influence and improve, with the aim of allowing staff to deliver their maximum potential within the organisation. A key area has been highlighting the untapped strengths and identifying how to develop recruitment, retention and progression.

Hearing Impairment Group

The Hearing Impairment Group is a relatively new group which hopes to offer advice, guidance and support to anyone who either lives and/or works with hearing loss, or anyone who wishes to be more aware of this particular disability.
