Darren Downs of Humberside Police is in the process of developing a modular based training system that will be rolled out force wide, not just in the Hull area, but Humberside wide for police officers, police staff, volunteers and any other member of the extended police family.
It is to look at areas of specific interest around diversity, equality and inclusion and promoting everything we need to train and understand within it. For example, modules around Religion and Belief will include things such as a module on Buddhism, on Hinduism, on Muslim, on Christianity and any other areas that people believe will be relevant under religion and belief. In relation to Race and Ethnicity, modules about Black, African, Asian, Chinese, Gypsy Romany Traveller and many more
There will be similar things under LGBT +, Disability, Age, Sex and all protected characteristics.
The intention is these modules will be all based on line and police officers and staff will be able to visit them, review them and do them annually with updates incorporated
Darren is asking for the community to talk to him about these areas and what it means to you, and provide the most up to date literature, facts and the figures. His request is if anybody would be interested in coming together and talking to him and his team.
If you are interested, or would like to know more, please email Darren.Downs@humberside.pnn.police.uk.
