Trans Inclusion Project 2019-2021

In 2017 the EGPA expanded its remit to include gender identity, formally recognising our many Tran colleagues who work in police forces across Europe. Bee Bailey, a police officer from the UK, was appointed our first Ambassador for Trans Inclusion and is currently working on a three year project to reach out to Trans Police Officers and create a safe space and conversational forum.

 

Bee has also delivered training to police forces across Europe, to help improve the awareness of staff and to explain in detail why organisations need to review current policies.
