Police Superintendents Logo

Our vision is to to support and represent our members’ welfare and interests, while being an influential voice in policing for the public good.

A core priority is therefore aligned to 'valuing difference' in all aspects of our work:

  • The diversity within our membership
  • The rich and diverse nature of our workforce
  • The diversity of the communities in which we serve

NEC Reserve Seats 

Our policy making body, the National Executive Committee, includes reserve place seats, representing the interests of under represented groups within our membership.  These include:

  • BAME
  • Gender
  • LGBT+
  • Disability

Members in these reserve places bring issues facing members, and other staff and officers within the police family, to the association to inform and support our work towards ensuring that equality and diversity runs through all we do.

Coaching and Mentoring

In 2018, The Police Superintendents’ Association launched a Coaching and Mentoring Programme, in collaboration with the College of Policing.

The  programme provides training in becoming a coach or mentor, enabling officers and staff across the policing family, access to informal, flexible support to help their professional development.

The scheme is specifically aimed at staff from under represented groups, and to date, 22% of beneficiaries are from a BAME background and 61% are female. Learn more here.
