British Association
for Women in Policing

I am the National Lead for Maternal Mental Health in Policing. This comes under the umbrella of the National Maternity Working Group which is a sub group of the NPCC Gender Portfolio. I’m excited to be starting this piece of work. If you would like to be involved, get in touch!

I am very pleased to announce that the Police Staff Council has agreed to our claim for parity with police officers.

PSC Joint Circular 115 which confirms that: New maternity/adoption pay entitlements come into effect for Police Staff from 4 January 2021.

The British Association for Women in Policing was founded to empower the Police services’ strong, hardworking women. The organisation’s mission is to continue to ensure that women’s voices in policing are both heard and understood.

Gender equality within policing is an integral part of BAWP’s mission and the organisation plays a significant role in providing a platform for women within in the industry.

With representatives across the UK, including the British Transport Police, Royal Navy Police, National Crime Agency and Isle of Man Constabulary, we work with both national and geographic forces and law enforcement responsibilities.
