Volunteers wanted to help scrutinise and support local policing

If you are interested in local policing and care about the safety and protection of your local community, this could be the volunteering role for you.

In North Yorkshire there are a number of volunteers who help the Commissioner and Chief Constable scrutinise and support local policing, looking into all different elements of policing and this new group requires a cross section of the community to get involved.

The Police Practice Community Review Groups will be focusing on the use of Stop and Search and Use of Force, both issues which have draw local and national attention recently.  As a volunteer you will help review and feedback to the Commissioner and Chief Constable on local policing practices, in turn making sure policing improves in your community and there is greater legitimacy in policing in North Yorkshire.

Volunteers for this group can come from all sections of the community – parents, business people, community representatives, young people and many others too. You should be committed and interested and prepared to attend quarterly meetings, and keen to learn and understand how policing is undertaken, the legislation surrounding policing practice and able to provide clear views and feedback. The review groups will assess and provide feedback on the appropriate use of these powers, identifying good practice and areas for learning, making referrals and recommendations to single county-wide Stop and Search and Use of Force Scrutiny Panel.
