Diversity Unit

The Diversity Unit is responsible for developing strategy and promoting practical actions that support fairness in the workplace, and the delivery of a police service that is fair to all sectors of the community.

The unit plays a key role in ensuring policies and practices comply with relevant legislation and all staff fully understand the need to prevent discrimination from occurring and to promote better relations, both in the workplace and within our communities.

One of the main roles of Local Diversity Officers is to visit and work with Community Members to promote an understanding of the policing process. The Diversity Officers have set up excellent working relationships with support groups in their local areas who sometimes act as third party information providers enabling victims of hate crime to report anonymously.

The Diversity Officers hold regular forums/community surgeries to discuss North Wales Police policy and strategic direction, aiming to provide members of the community with an understanding of the functions and policy of the Force.

The following consultation groups have been established:

  • The Diversity Steering Group
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Consultation Group
  • Disability Consultation Group
  • North Wales Police Independent Advisory Group
  • Mosque Leaders Group

If you would like to attend any of these groups or find out more about them please contact us either by emailing diversityliaison@nthwales.pnn.police.uk or calling 01492 805398.

Force Steering Group

The Force has an established Diversity Steering Group, which acts as a forum to consider both external and internal views in relation to diversity and to work with members of our communities in order to enable the Force to respond effectively to diversity issues.

Independent Advisory Group (IAG)

The IAG is composed of Advisors who are independent of the police service, independent of each other and independent of organisations. This means that they must not seek to promote the work of other organisations through the work of the advisory group. The IAG gives independent, impartial advice on both external and internal diversity issues involving North Wales Police.
