Call for volunteers to scrutinise police boss
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.
