Norfolk Police one of Britain’s top police forces for LGBT staff

Norfolk Constabulary has, for the second year running, been named as one of Britain’s top police forces in a list showcasing the best employers for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff.

Stonewall have today published its Top 100 Employers 2016, which is a definitive guide to the best places to work for LGBT employees. For the consecutive year, Norfolk Constabulary has featured in the Top 100 and this year has seen the force go up from position 40 to 32, making it one of the top police forces for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff in Britain.

Chief Constable Simon Bailey said: "I am absolutely delighted to lead an organisation that has yet again been named in the Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers for LGBT staff.

"This is recognition for the commitment and proactive approach Norfolk Constabulary takes to achieve workplace equality and we will continue to work with staff to ensure we have a working environment where all employees are able to reach their full potential and feel supported in everything they do.”

National LGBT Police Network Chair, Inspector Lou Provart, said: "This is a testament to the work the constabulary has undertaken to ensure the organisation champions LGBT equality both for our staff and our communities. We know that a supportive workplace for staff creates a culture where people can be themselves at work, which is well known to improve performance."
