West Midlands Police appoint Harvi Khatkar as first Sikh superintendent

281

The West Midlands Police has ventured into previously uncharted waters by appointing Harvi Khatkar as superintendent, who will be the first female Sikh to be in a position of authority.

Commenting on this remarkable achievement after 25 loyal years as a police officer, Khatkar has been cited in Express and Star as saying, “It is a real privilege and I have been a police officer in the West Midlands for 25 years now and, although it hasn’t been without challenges getting to this point, I am delighted to have this opportunity.

I do feel a sense of pride at being the first Asian woman to reach the rank of Superintendent.

The best thing about being a police officer is no one day is the same, you face varied situations.

We are a diverse police force with a range of different cultures so I have no doubt there will be many more women, and men, from a BME background who will continue to rise through the force in future.

If others see me as an inspiration then I am honoured, but the main thing is to follow your own ambitions, work hard to achieve them and be yourself.”
