People asked to join police advice group

People actively involved in their community are being asked to assist the police and crime comissioner by becoming an independent advisor.

Volunteers are sought to join an independent advisory group in Daventry and South Northamptonshire, to consider how police policies, 
practices and procedures might impact them and their peers.

Community representatives who are part of the group will meet bi-monthly to offer valuable insight to the police about diversity and equality issues affecting the community they are living in, socialising in or working in.

Northamptonshire Police and Police and Crime Commissioner, Adam Simmonds, says he is committed to regularly engaging with diverse communities across the county. Independent Advisory Groups (IAGs) provide one of many forums to enable this.

Mr Simmonds said: “If you live or work in the county, are interested in what the police are doing in your community, feel you are able to constructively challenge and offer advice to us, then please do get in touch.

“Together we can improve services across the whole criminal justice system.”

The deadline for applications is Monday March 3, 2014.
