"Best" For Gay Employees

Cops Tops In UK

Some Scottish police are awfully proud this week. The Lothian and Border police squad, which covers Edinburgh and the Lothian areas, dominated Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index:

A police force has been named Scotland’s most gay-friendly employer.

Lothian and Borders Police is also the first Scottish employer to feature in the top 20 of Britain’s best employers… Lothian and Borders Police – Scotland’s second largest force – came 11th in the UK survey, up from 80th place last year.

Stonewall found the Scottish Government was the second best employer in Scotland, coming 51st in the top 100.

A police spokesman said they’re “delighted” to receive such an honor. He should have said “tickled pink”!

The gay group also celebrated the Hampshire coppers.
