Thames Valley Police Achieves Race Equality Matters Trailblazer Silver Status 

Thames Valley Police Achieves Race Equality Matters Trailblazer Silver Status 

We are thrilled to announce that we have successfully achieved Race Equality Matters Trailblazer Silver status. This prestigious recognition is awarded to organisations driving meaningful change to tackle race inequality. 

Achieving Silver status (the second stage in the Trailblazer series) highlights our implementation of impactful solutions to promote race equality. An independent panel of experts with lived experience of workplace race inequality has acknowledged our efforts. 

Securing Trailblazer status signifies that our initiatives have made a significant impact across our entire organisation, moving us closer to our goal of becoming a more diverse, inclusive, and equal workplace. 


Assistant Chief Constable Dennis Murray stated: 

“Being the first force to secure bronze and now silver status underscores our commitment to being an anti-racist organisation. The rigorous external scrutiny and verification processes we have undergone demonstrate the sincerity of our efforts. I am deeply grateful for the hard work and dedication that have led to this accreditation.” 

Race Equality Matters (REM), a not-for-profit formed in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, aims to shift organisations from discussion to meaningful action in addressing race inequality. Collaborating with individuals who have first hand experience of race inequality, REM develops practical tools and strategies that reach thousands of changemakers and millions of employees through its extensive network.
