The Jewish Police Association has been named as one of the principle contributors to have helped the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) win the Overall Public Sector Winner in the Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion (ENEI) Awards 2012 for improving workforce representation and the participation of diverse communities.
Trevor Phillips OBE, the outgoing Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, who presented the Award, said: “That the overall winner of the 2012 public sector ENEI award has gone from being in the worst place possible to transforming the organisation is inspiring.”
The judges commented that the Jewish Police Association, itself shortlisted for an award, was one of: “The significant range of initiatives and activities in place to address diversity and equality challenges.”
Accepting the award on behalf of the MPS, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Steve Kavanagh said: “We can all be rightly proud that the MPS has won such a prestigious award.”
“The number of awards for which we were shortlisted shows the wide range of good work we undertake around equality and inclusion.”
“We remain committed to improving the services we provide to all of London’s communities and supporting all our staff to help them achieve their full potential.”
