I worked with Beverley on occasions during my time with Greater Manchester Police particularly when I was responsible for the Positive Action Team in 2003 -4. We regularly discussed issues around Minority Ethnic Recruitment and her advice and contacts in this field were often invaluable. (This being probably the only year GMP ever made its recruitment targets in this area).
Additionally we worked together on the Forces’ Positive Action (Strategic) Staffing Board which focused on progression (or lack of it) of minority ethnic members of staff through the service and in various specialisms.
I always found Beverley to be supportive of all the team generally and very able to provide advice in a free and frank way.
Bev’s a committed and passionate person in the things she believes in, which is always a great thing
