W will return the documentary series Women on the Force, following the women who work for the North Yorkshire Police.
The ten-part documentary will follow the brave women who must balance their crucial work as part of the police force with their lives once they are out of the uniform.
The North Yorkshire Police is led by the magnetic Chief Constable Lisa Winward, who must oversee and manage a team of 1,505 police officers, 99 special constables, 237 police community support officers and 1,049 police staff who must work together to serve and protect people across an area of 3,208 square miles.
Chief Constable Lisa Winward commented: “It’s vital that the stereotypes of policing in times past become a dim and distant memory. Policing requires many skills that can only be brought to the service by an inclusive and diverse workforce.
“We’re proud to have a high proportion of women in senior roles at North Yorkshire Police, but there is more to be done to encourage the next generation of women into policing and ensure we are truly representative of the people we serve.”
