Members of the public across Hampshire are being invited to apply to serve on the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel (PCP).
The PCP maintains a regular check and balance on the performance of the newly elected Commissioner, Donna Jones, and will hold them to account for their responsibilities to the residents of Hampshire.
Although the Police and Crime Commissioner is ultimately accountable to the electorate via the ballot box, they are required to consult with the Panel on plans and budget for policing, as well as the level of council tax, and, when necessary, the appointment of a Chief Constable.
Vice Chairman of the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel and Hampshire Councillor Jan Warwick said: “We are seeking applications from committed and enthusiastic residents who are keen to make suggestions for improvement to policing, community safety and crime issues across Hampshire.”
Applicants are invited to apply online at https://www.hants.gov.uk/aboutthecouncil/governmentinhampshire/police-crime-panel/co-opted-independent-member The closing date for applications is 25 May 2021
