FedCast 4: Why equality in policing is much more than ticking boxes

Tue, 11 Jun 2019

National Chair John Apter is joined by Equality lead Peggy Lamont to discuss why inclusion matters

“Policing has come a long way – but there is still much to do,” that’s the assessment of PFEW Equality lead Peggy Lamont as she and National Chair John Apter chat with Ian Collins about inclusion in the service, and why it’s vital everyone gets a level playing field.

With movements such as ‘Me Too’ still making the headlines it is clear parity for all is still some way off. We discuss what the Federation is doing to combat inequality and tackle discrimination. This latest edition of the FedCast also includes an update on the progress we have made in securing legal recognition for the specialised skills trained police drivers possess, and we hear about the National Chair’s busy late shift spent with officers from Brixton.  

How to listen to our FedCasts

Listening to a podcast is similar to listening to a radio programme. It is a digital audio file that can be streamed or downloaded from the internet and listened to on various digital devices and through numerous online services. A lot of people listen on their phone, but you can also listen on a desktop PC.

Did you miss FedCast 3 where we discussed the spike in serious violent crime and why access to the correct PPE is vital?

You can listen to the previous FedCast here – you should also be able to find us on your iPhone or iPad using the default Podcasts app on the home screen, on an Android device via the Google Podcasts App as well as on Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn.

Our next FedCast will be on pay and conditions and the work we did to support members during President Trump’s recent state visit.
