Nottinghamshire Police have re-signed the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC), continuing their commitment to support the Armed Forces Community. The force already hold a Silver in the Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), and last signed the AFC in October 2017.

By re-signing, Nottinghamshire Police are renewing their pledge that Regulars, Reservists, Veterans, and Armed Forces families be treated fairly in society.

The Covenant was re-signed by Chief Constable Craig Guildford, in the presence of East Midland RFCA’s Regional Employer Engagement Director, Bruce Spencer.

Six people, four in police uniform, stand outside in a line.

Nottinghamshire Police hold a Silver ERS award.

Chief Constable Guildford is himself a member of the Reserve Forces. Upon re-signing the AFC, he said: “Nottinghamshire Police is proud to support the UK’s military community and by re-signing the Covenant, we have pledged our commitment to its principles.

“The force is proud to count a number of former serving members of the Armed Forces and Reservists among its employees, and the skills and experience military personnel bring are highly valued.”

Speaking on Armistice Day last year, where the force took part in a Remembrance ceremony, the Chief Constable commented: “As a force we are a very strong supporter of the military covenant and also have a lot of officers and staff who have previously served in the armed forces and a lot of their relatives have too.”
