Subject: UK:Report on ACPO trans-portfolio meeting - featuring 15 trans-police officers

 This report is from PFC vice president, sociologist and hate crime specialist Dr Lewis Turner.

 Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO)

Trans-portfolio meeting Bramshill, Hampshire October 10/11 2007

 The Association of Chief Police Officers has members who are either Deputy or Assistant Chief Constables from each police force (44 in total). Each member has his or her own portfolio to work on.

 In Lancashire police, our Deputy Chief Constable Mike Cunningham has an LGBT portfolio, which involves consultation with community members and stakeholder groups on how the police service can improve. He decided recently that the 'T' in the LGBT needed to be a separate group - and I was invited to the first meeting at New Scotland Yard in London earlier this year.

 The second meeting was held at Bramshill Police leadership training centre in Hampshire. Members of the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) had asked each force if they had a trans police officer and to forward an invitation for consultation to them. This meant that police officers who had transitioned at work (being the trans staff who were known to be trans) were invited.

 We had a reception at Bramshill with coffee and then dinner together and later networking in one of the bars. 15 officers attended from all over the country, many in uniform; many of whom were 'public-facing' staff. The following day we held workshops in two groups to discuss trans issues in the police service both in employment issues and providing a service for trans people.

 This was an extremely positive experience - and history in the making. I wondered if 5 or 10 years ago this event would have happened. It reinforces my belief in all the work that I do with the police (well Lancashire police as a community member as well as Hate Crimes officer in local government), that they really are trying to improve the service which trans folk get.

 The group is moving forward with setting up a network of trans police officers who will be involved in the ACPO trans portfolio group and they are keen for other trans police officers to be involved as well.

This group can act as a 'critical friend' to ACPO and advise on the key issues which emerged - training and proper trans policies for all forces.

 Anyone interested in joining the proposed trans officers network can contact Ian Saunders from the National Police Improvement Agency:
