As a Force, we are committed to developing the overall structure of equality, diversity and inclusion across South Wales Police: in our workforce and in the services we provide.

South Wales Police is an equal opportunities employer and is determined to attract, employ and support a workforce which is representative of the diverse society which it serves.

We are committed to achieving a working environment which is free from any form of harassment, intimidation, bullying or victimisation.

Applications are welcomed from all under-represented groups and support will be made available for all applicants as and when requested. 


We also aim to ensure that all our employment practices, including recruitment, are applied consistently and fairly. We expect that all staff involved in the recruitment process share this commitment. The members of staff and assessors involved in our recruitment processes are trained to reflect our high standards, including a requirement to complete Unconscious Bias training. This ensures that the principles of the Equality Act are adhered to.

Disability Confident Employer

South Wales Police is a Disability Confident Employer (Level 2) under the Department of Work and Pensions Disability Confident Scheme. We welcome applications and expressions of interest from anyone with a disability and, in line with our policies supporting this activity, we guarantee to interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum requirements of the Role Profile.

Equal Opportunities

Applicants are invited to provide equal opportunities data as part of their application form for monitoring purposes. The information supplied will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not affect your application in any way: it will be detached from your application on receipt and will not be made available to those assessing your application. Providing this information is voluntary but it will help us ensure equality of opportunity.

It is our pledge that:

  • No job applicant or employee is treated more or less favourably on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, age, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, religion or belief or disability. This is subject to the police service engaging in a positive action scheme which intends to overcome or minimise a person's disadvantage.
  • No job applicant or employee is disadvantaged by a provision, criterion or practice which cannot be shown to be a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim.
