West Midlands police force has come under fire after launching a number of promotion scheme which blocked white males from half of its positions.

The scheme, which was intended to give women and minorities a ‘better chance’ of getting promotions, has now been “paused” after the Police Federation Unit accused the force of discriminating against straight, white males.

Officers were invited to apply for promotions eight times over the last year, with seven of those promotion rounds banning white males from applying for half of the promotions, and the eighth opened applications for white males two days later than applications for women and BAME candidates.

The force is apparently aiming to have a third of its positions filled by women & BAME officers but is offering 50% of its positions exclusively to these groups.

Under the Equality Act 2010, organisations can offer promotions and employment schemes exclusively to people with certain “protected characteristics” which are underrepresented, such as specific races, religions, genders and sexualities.

However, such schemes are usually very controversial and face major public backlashes from people who see that they are simply bringing back the racism of the past but in reverse.

The scheme in the West Midlands Police Force, which was particularly controversial, was originally drawn up by the force’s new People and Organisational Development (POD), which uses its £17+ million budget to offer opportunities to women and BAME people interested in working for the police.

The POD employs over 400 people, with its director earning over £123,000 and its Head of Diversity on a £65,751 salary along with a number of other bizarre-sounding jobs such as a ‘Positive Action Manager’, each paid well over £40,000 a year.

However, it is likely that the POD will be forced to stop its schemes which have been accused of discriminating against white males, after the investigation and the public backlash.
