College visitor inspires equality

A leading member of Nottinghamshire Police visited West Nottinghamshire College this week to speak to students about careers and equality.

DCC Sue Fish spoke about the profile of women in the world of work

Deputy chief constable Sue Fish, who has had a career with the police force since 1986, joined more than 50 students to talk about her life in the uniformed services.

She spoke about a range of statistics relating to females in the police force and other uniformed services as well as how women have made headway in the world of work supported by the Equal Opportunities Act 1975 and the Equal Pay Act 1975.

DCC Fish rose to the rank of chief inspector in Worksop as well as spending two years with the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary. Moving to West Midlands Police in 1999 she became a chief superintendent before returning to Nottinghamshire Police in 2004 to be assistant chief constable.

The college’s equality and diversity intern, Alex Stone, said: “It was an honour to welcome Sue to speak to the students, some of whom are considering a career in the uniformed services.

“She shared the interesting journey of her own career whilst highlighting the issue of female equality and the rise of females in high-profile jobs in a variety of sectors. Her talk gave a great insight into her own experiences as well as providing an interesting overview of the history of women’s rights and involvement in the police service.”
