POLICE are planning two seminars designed to recruit from ethnic minorities in Kirklees.
Both will feature black and ethnic minority officers talking about life in the police.
Insp Raham Khan, chairman of the West Yorkshire Black Police Association, said: "We work in a culturally diverse area so we welcome applications from people who reflect the community.
"There are countless rewarding career opportunities, not only in the number of places you could work but also in the type of jobs with our many specialist units."
Huddersfield-based Insp Mark Broadhead said: "I would encourage anyone interested in a career with the police to come along.
"This is a chance to meet officers, find out what life as an officer is really like and hear about the many different jobs you can do."
The events are being held at the Hudawi Centre on Great Northern Street on Tuesday, March 9, at 2-7pm and at the Taleem Centre on Orchard Street, Saviletown, Dewsbury, on Monday, March 8 at 7-9pm.
They are part of a Home Office recruitment drive which is focused on increasing black and minority ethnic officers in the county.
West Yorkshire Police is the fourth largest in the country with 5,200 officers covering an area of 780 square miles and serving a population of 2.1m people.
