Police and Crime Panel seeks new member

Serve your community - become an independent member of the Norfolk Police and Crime Panel

If you could take on a key role influencing local policing and community safety issues, and making a real difference to your community - you may be the right person to serve as an independent member of the Norfolk Police and Crime Panel. 

The Panel is part of the accountability arrangements for policing in Norfolk and maintains a 'check and balance' on the performance of the directly elected Police and Crime Commissioner.

The Panel is looking for one person who has knowledge and skills in this area to serve as a Co-opted Independent Member from September 2017. The role will require, on average, 3 to 10 hours a month, with meetings held during the day at locations across Norfolk. The role is unpaid but travel and some expenses will be reimbursed.

This is an important and challenging role which offers you the chance to provide independent and constructive challenge to support the Commissioner.
We would particularly welcome applicants from the business, voluntary and community sector, organisations supporting black and minority ethnic groups or victims of crime, as well as representatives of the community safety or the criminal justice system and anyone who has experience of reviewing complaints.
For more information on the role, or to apply to join the Panel, please visit the Norfolk County Council website.
