Positive Action

 Positive Action

The Equality Act 2010 allows for the use of ‘positive action’ in a number of specific circumstances. Positive action can be taken to encourage people from particular groups to take advantage of opportunities for work or training.

The Special Constabulary shows current under representation by females, BME and disabled officers. BME includes all diverse groups. Some disabilities will prevent an application to the Special Constabulary due to the nature of the role, however there are other opportunities with Dorset Police
