New volunteer members are sought to give independent advice to Bedfordshire’s police force.
Bedfordshire has two Independent Advisory Groups – one in the north of the county, one in the south – that work to help Beds police officers give the best possible service to the communities they serve.
The Biggleswade, Sandy and Potton area comes under the north IAG, which is looking to recruit seven new members. Interviews for successful applicants will be held over three weeks, starting from July 17.
North IAG chairman Mark Cattle said: “We help police better understand local communities and build the right kind of service for the people of Bedfordshire.
“As an IAG member you could be involved in a wide variety of ways, such as advising on policy and strategy, providing advice during critical incidents or participating in and evaluating training.
You may also want to watch:
“If you find this and the concept of representing your community interesting, please apply.”
Ch Insp Hob Hoque added that the police saw the IAGs as “critical friends”, and a source of vital independent advice to the force.
