Equality Information

West Yorkshire Police, as required by other public bodies with more than 150 employees in the UK, must publish information to show how we comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act 2010. This duty came into effect on 31st January 2012. You can find out more information about the Act and the Duty at the GOV.UK

In establishing what information is published we have consulted on what information people might be interested in, considered what information other police services and other public sector bodies publish and referred to guidance published by the Government Equalities Office and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). This section of our website publishes information that shows how we demonstrate ‘due regard’ to the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) in delivering our policing services and for our workforce.

West Yorkshire Police is committed to positively responding to the duty and whilst we continue to consult on what people might want us to publish, we welcome suggestions from the communities of West Yorkshire regarding any further information we should publish.
If you have any suggestions for future publications please contact us

The commitment we make to the equality duty does not affect our other duties, such as the access to information provided by the Freedom of Information Act.

In addition, further West Yorkshire data can be accessed from POLICE.UK
