UK: Police applicant is told ‘we’re only hiring women and minorities’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Potential recruits to West Yorkshire Police are being turned down because they aren’t women or ethnic minorities, a Kirklees councillor has claimed.

Cllr Mark Thompson, (Con, Birstall), spoke out after a white man who applied for a job was unable to have his application progressed as he didn’t belong to a minority group. The prospective recruit was told that his application would be held until Police Officer recruitment is open for everyone.

At Kirklees Council’s last full council meeting, West Yorkshire Mayor Tracy Brabin who has responsibility for police matters heard the councillor’s concerns.'
