Rebecca Kalam: Ex-firearms officer wins £820,0000 sex discrimination compensation

Communities Editor

The former police firearms officer Rebecca Kalam has been awarded more than £820,000 in compensation – one of the biggest payouts of its kind – after she successfully sued West Midlands Police for sex discrimination, harrassment, and victimisation.

She told this programme in an exclusive interview last year about the misogyny and toxic behaviour she faced at work – claiming the force had failed to properly investigate it.
