Hampshire Constabulary

United Kingdom: (Feb-12-07) Former policeman, Philip Currier, sued the police department for willfully differentiating against him on account of his dyslexia. Currier first tried to join Hampshire police in 2003 after 22 years as a navy chef. He said he had dyslexia, yet he was given no extra time to sit the entrance exam, which he failed the first time. After highlighting his condition, he was allowed to re sit with more time and passed. During the next 15 weeks of training, Currier repeatedly found tutors were unaware of his condition. The repeated pressure contributed to his acute depression. The Hampshire Constabulary paid Currier £17,500 in damages. [PORTSMOUTH TODAY: DYSLEXIA DISCRIMINATION]
