The common theme was to encourage young people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups to apply for jobs within the various services and forces.
An encouraging factor is that the age limit for joining some of the forces has been raised.
As an incentive, many of the forces will fund further education programmes in universities and colleges, dependent on individual interests.
