Force to recruit minority groups


Staffordshire Police is appealing for more women and people from ethnic minorities to apply for job vacancies with the force. It plans to start a new recruitment campaign to help increase the numbers.

Last year the number of ethnic minority staff working for the force increased by just three while the number of female staff went up by 29.

Regarding other staffing, the force said it had succeeded in recruiting more special constables.

About 76 were appointed from over 400 applications.

The force said new funding meant it could put an extra 21 bobbies on the beat. An extra 56 police community support officers were also employed, taking the total across the county to 63.

Last week it said it had cut the number of sick days taken by staff.
