GMP (Greater Manchester Police) opened its doors to a group of Manchester Academy students this week, inviting them to its Sedgeley Park training college.
One of the main aims of the day was to highlight career opportunities within policing for young people from black and ethnic minority groups, with former Assistant Chief Constable Karen Daber sharing her own journey through the ranks with the young visitors.
During the visit, the students also learnt the policing code of ethics, which they discussed with a range of police delegates, helping them to understand why high standards of ethical behaviour are so important within the police.
The group was also tasked with designing and delivering a presentation around one of the nine key principals of ethical policing: accountability, fairness, honesty, integrity, leadership, objectivity, openness, respect and selflessness.
Manchester Academy Principal Andy Griffin commenting on the visit, said:
“We're very grateful to the GMP for helping to arrange this excellent opportunity for our students. It has made a real impact, with some of those taking part now seriously considering a career within the police."
