Recruiting ethnic minorities into police and prison services
Working towards higher levels of recruitment, retention and promotion of police and prison officer from ethnic minorities.
The police service is a visible and influential public service which needs to promote the support and active participation of all sections of the community. Fair and non-discriminatory treatment of all staff and members of the public is vital if the service is to retain the trust and confidence of the public in its professionalism and integrity.
During the 1990's the United Kingdom Home Office set up a series of meetings between representatives from the Black Police Officers Associations and the Home Office to work towards the promotion of race relations and equality of opportunity within the police service. Among other measures under consideration is the setting of targets for increasing the recruitment, retention and promotion of minority ethnic officers.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
