The two government policies that I have chosen to write a word report about is the equality act and environmental change act. Equality Act The Equality Act, which came into force at the beginning of February 2004, seeks to restore this problem. The purpose of the Act is to foster equality and increase the protection provided by law to those who have experienced discrimination. The Equality Act prohibits discrimination based on age, racial or ethnic origin, citizenship, language, religion or belief, conviction, opinion, state of health, disability, sexual orientation or other personal characteristics. The equality act has a big impact on all of the public services. In every single public service you would get people who are from different ethic background, ages, sex, and religion. In the public services they all would have to get along with each other and respect each others beliefs, regardless of all the differences. In the police force the current recruitment status is that they require more ethnic backgrounds to apply for the position of police officers. ...read more.


To prove that they are the main targets of the police the black and Asian communities could refer to the static figures of the stop and search. This also has the downfall that the police and both the communities wouldn't get along very well together and starts disputes between them. The introduction of the equality act is very crucial in the public services. The 3 main public services which include police service, fire service and the ambulance have a really big responsibility to serve and protect the public in which ever way they can. This means that all the members of the public service are highly trusted in the service that they represent. For the public service to get their tasks done they would have to work in a team and to have a team which is not diverse in the term of different gender, race and religion can have a massive downfall to the team. So therefore for the team to be diverse, which is what the introduction of the policy was aiming for, would be better. ...read more.


The other disadvantages are that the police wouldn't have enough resources at times such as enough computers and work equipment to be able to complete their tasks. The stuff that the public services have gained from the impact of this policy is that they are organized and are now able to keep all the records and documents in a single place without the use of paper. This means that there are less trees being cut to make paper. The bad impact of this policy being introduced to the public services is that they need more equipment and electronics which would take a big sum of money out the budget of the police. The general public says that this policy is a good start to saving the environment. They say that the policy is been followed by not only the public service but by everyone. I think that the policy has done what it was aimed for because since it has been introduced people have been recycling their waste into different sets of bins, this includes the public services they also have started to recycle their waste. ?? ?? ?? ??
