A new initiative to support the police workforce with neurodiverse conditions, has been launched by Hertfordshire Constabulary.

The newly unveiled Neurodiversity Champions scheme, consists of some 30 volunteers from within the force, tasked with catering to officers and staff with neurodiverse conditions.

Although not serving as diagnosticians, these champions will lend an ear, guide individuals towards resources and offer experiential advice on neurodiversity.

Detective chief inspector Craig Flint, strategic lead for disability, said: “There has been a lot of work taking place to get to this point and I would like to thank those who have been busy behind the scenes to bring this to fruition.

“This is a big step forward in our work to support those with neurodiverse conditions within our workforce."
