Call for vol­un­teers to scru­ti­nise po­lice boss

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

PEO­PLE are be­ing en­cour­aged to come for­ward and help scru­ti­nise po­lice plans for Bucks.

Two new in­de­pen­dent co-opted mem­bers are be­ing sought for the Thames Val­ley po­lice and crime panel, to help it scru­ti­nise polic­ing plans for Bucks, Berk­shire and Ox­ford­shire.

The panel ex­am­ines and re­views how the po­lice and crime com­mis­sioner for Thames Val­ley, An­thony Stans­feld, car­ries out his re­spon­si­bil­ity of en­sur­ing that Thames Val­ley Po­lice runs ef­fec­tively.

The panel con­sists of one coun­cil­lor from each of the 18 lo­cal au­thor­i­ties in Thames Val­ley as well as two in­de­pen­dent coopted mem­bers.

The role of the new mem­bers is to act as an in­de­pen­dent voice on the panel and se­lec­tion will be based on the knowl­edge, skills and ex­per­tise in­di­vid­u­als can bring.

Vol­un­teers for the role would serve a four-year term, if suc­cess­ful, and must be able to ded­i­cate around one day per month to the post and at­tend a min­i­mum of six meet­ings each year, at vary­ing lo­ca­tions in Thames Val­ley. Train­ing will be given to those se­lected.

Ap­pli­cants have un­til Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 27 to ap­ply, with in­ter­views be­ing held next month.
