Series 3, Episode 6: Building a gender-equal police force with Miles Ockwell

This week MD Lisa Jobson speaks to HeForShe-pledger Miles Ockwell, Detective Superintendent for West Sussex Police.

Detective Superintendent Miles Ockwell talks to Lisa about why he decided to persuade the UN to accept the West Sussex Police force as the first UK Thematic Champion of the HeforShe campaign, which deals with gender inequality. They talk about the impact the project has had on gender disparity in West Sussex Police and in the police force nationally following its subsequent adoption by every force in the UK, as well as the challenges they face in the future.
