Democratic Plans To Police The Police

There's a chance for someone in the Aylesbury Vale to oversee the work of future policing plans in the
Thames Valley.

It's part of the Government's new police accountability arrangements - locally being set up as the
Thames Valley Police and Crime Panel - which will monitor and scrutinise the work of the Police.

The two volunteer roles will also oversee the work of the new Crime Commissioner, which will be a new pubicly elected role this November.

The Panel will be made up of one councillor from the Aylesbury Vale District, Chiltern District and South Oxfordshire Districts, together with 15 other local authorities in the Thames Valley, as well as the two independent volunteers.

Recruitment has just started for these two co-optee positions and the Panel is keen to encourage applications from anyone who feels they could take on this exciting and important role.

The role of the co-optees is to act as an independent voice on the Panel and selection will be based on the knowledge, skills and expertise the individuals can bring. The co-optees could have a professional background in an area such as community safety, criminal justice or victim support.

Alternatively, a strong track record of relevant voluntary work would be just as valuable. Applications are being particularly encouraged from under-represented groups.

Anyone interested in applying for one of the independent co-optee roles must be able to dedicate around one day per month and attend a minimum of six meetings each year at varying locations in the Thames Valley. Co-optees would serve a four year term.

No allowance is paid for the roles, but travel expenses will be paid and all relevant training will be provided. The closing date for applications is 13 July.
