Strategic Equality Plan

The OPCC has developed its new Strategic Equality Plan and objectives which will be published, following the election period, with the endorsement of the new Police and Crime Commissioner. The current plan will remain live until the new one is published.

In October 2020, the OPCC and Gwent Police published our second Joint Strategic Equality Plan. Our Strategic Equality Plan 2020-24 has been developed around fundamental principles that will help us to achieve our objectives. 

We want to:

  • Provide a police service that reflects the communities it serves.
  • Foster an organisational culture that demonstrates the importance of equality and inclusivity.
  • Deliver a high-quality service that Gwent’s diverse communities are confident to use and engage with.

To meet these aims, equality plan objectives have been set for every protected characteristic. Our objectives are outcome-focused, with clear, specific improvements to benefit our staff and our communities. We have outlined objectives on a four-year basis aligned to specific improvements and outcomes as set out in our Delivery Plans. In doing so, we aim to meet both our legal compliance requirements and support the vision, values and key principles within the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.
