Should the police force be able to use positive discrimination rather than positive action to recruit and promote more people from black, female and other minority groups?

Introduction

Should the police force be able to use positive discrimination rather than positive action to recruit and promote more people from black, female and other minority groups? It is important that women and minority groups are represented in the police force because life is fully committed to the elimination of unfair discrimination and the promotion of equality and diversity for all. So therefore I think there should adopt a voluntary Diversity Equality Scheme. It should run a positive campaign 'making a difference' to encourage people from under represented groups to become representatives. There are no winners in employment tribunals and the service for police force needs to establish more effective ways of learning the employment when things go wrong. As an opinion female and male should be treated equally so therefore both genders should also be in the police force. Different people work in different ways and are employed differently. ...read more.

Middle

By contrast, it is argued that these measures are not taken simply to 'prefer' women rather than to ensure full equality in practice in a more effective manner. Many people think the police force should be able to use positive discrimination rather than positive action to recruit and promote more people from black, female, and other minority groups. This is because they think black officers should take over the white and will be able to fight for it. The scheme they want is black, asian and female officers to be offered more than a constable, they would want them to be up to the rank of an inspector. The scheme meaning decisions on selection not being made alone but also on race and gender. On the other hand some think the opposite of this and think they should rather use action. The reason for this is because a number of white police officers claimed they have been discriminated against the colour of their skin and resentful white's convinced they are the ones being overlooked for promotion. ...read more.

Conclusion

I also agree that when making decisions, there should be a range of race and gender. As overall as my opinion I think the law should change ethnic minority black officers through positive discrimination. Positive discrimination is the selection of a candidate for a position on the grounds of race, sex or colour rather than merit alone. If positive discrimination is introduced it will lead the police force to have more communication and representatives. The police force will have both sex and a racial mix. It will be really useful in areas where there are a high percentage of ethic minorities. 'Police action policies' in the police force was already an issue, and people want to see ethnic minorities getting jobs in specialised areas and chief officers positions. There should be able to manage that as well. As a police authority, their duty is to maintain an efficient and effective police service. They should be improving and should discuss the possible future policing. So overall there should not be able to reject people. ...read more.
