The Police Authority Board is committed to ensuring that legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and associated Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) are met by the Force and the Police Authority. We will ensure our work delivers against this legal obligation by:

  1. Introducing measures to ensure that there is equality of opportunity and non-discrimination
  2. Creating a working environment free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination
  3. Removing barriers and redressing imbalances caused by inequality and unjustified discrimination
  4. Promoting dignity and respect for all, where individual difference and the contributions of all staff are recognised and valued
  5. Creating opportunities for training, development and progress available to all staff – who will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential, so their talents and resources can be fully utilised to maximise the efficiency of the Force
  6. Co-ordinating cross partnership working between the City Corporation, City of London Police (CoLP) and external agencies
  7. Increasing public consultation with focus on inequality issues to enhance understanding and improve service delivery within the Force, including women regarding personal and public safety in the City
  8. Adopting innovative ways to engage with local communities, faith leaders and the family of schools and business within the Square Mile
  9. Developing effective procedures and policies to combat all forms of unlawful discrimination across recruitment, selection, performance management, retention and disciplinary practices
  10. Addressing complaints of bullying, harassment and victimisation by CoLP staff, public and any others in the course of the Force’s work activities
  11. Conducting regular data gathering exercises and reviews to ensure that these measures are being adopted and adhered to with appropriate speed.
