Would you like the opportunity to have your say on decisions about the delivery of policing services in the Humberside area? 
The Humberside Police and Crime Panel (PCP) is looking for two community-minded individuals to join the Panel as co-opted members.
On 5 May 2016, people across Humberside will go to the polls to elect their Police and Crime Commissioner. The main role of the Police and Crime Panel is to scrutinise the Police and Crime Commissioner and to promote openness in the delivery of policing services.
The Police and Crime Panel is made up of councillors from the four local councils in the Humberside area and the role of the two co-opted members will be to act as independent voices on the Panel.
Applicants must be over 18 years-old and live or work in the Humberside Police area.
Co-opted members could have a professional background in areas such as community safety, criminal justice, victim support, or a strong track record of voluntary/community work.
Applicants cannot:

  • Be a member of staff of the Police and Crime Commissioner for the Humberside Police area
  • Be a member of the civilian staff of the Police force for the Humberside area
  • Be a member of Parliament, a Member of the National Assembly for Wales, a Member of the Scottish Parliament or a Member of the European Parliament
  • Be a councillor of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hull City Council, North East Lincolnshire Council or North Lincolnshire Council
  • Have been declared bankrupt
  • Have been convicted of an imprison-able offence

Anyone interested in applying for the role must be able to dedicate around one day per month and be available to attend a number of meetings at varying locations in the Humberside Police area. Co-opted members would serve up to a four year term. No allowance is paid for the roles, but travel expenses will be paid and relevant training will be provided.
If you are interested in applying, please email policeandcrimepanel@northlincs.gov.uk, call 01724 296014 or in writing to: Secretary to the Humberside Police and Crime Panel, FAO Matthew Nundy, Civic Centre, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN16 1AB.

Humberside Police and Crime Panel was established in 2012 to examine policing plans in North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull. The PCP is a scrutiny body.
