North Wales Police aim to recruit more Welsh speakers
May 17 2008 by Eryl Crump, Daily Post

BANGOR University has teamed up with police to increase the number of
Welsh speakers in the force. They are keen to encourage applications
from interested people of all ages from the region to study the BA
Welsh-medium degree in Sociology and Social Policy.
Successful applicants will receive an annual £1,000 scholarship for
three years. They will also be offered the opportunity to undertake a
six week work placement. Chief Inspector Ray Hughes, head of Welsh
Language Services in North Wales Police said: "We are duty bound, as a
public body, to provide bilingual services. The scholarship is part of
a wider scholarship campaign. This new venture extends the partnership
established two years ago with Bangor University's School of Social
Sciences. As a major employer in North Wales we also acknowledge our
responsibility to promote projects that widen participation of groups
by providing new opportunities in the Welsh language."

OPEN meetings are being staged at various points in North Wales during
the next few weeks. To find out more contact 01492 804146.
