At a recent meeting of the Student Council, members felt that some of our pupils and their families may be interested in participating in a Police Independent Advisory Group.
The Wycombe Police Independent Advisory Group (IAG) allows interested individuals and community groups to meet regularly with the most senior local police Commanders and have their views listened to .
Meetings are held routinely about four times per year, with extra meetings arranged if and when necessary and the Group aspires to reflect the views of the local community. All communities should be involved; after all policing decisions affect us all. The IAG believes that we all deserve high quality policing services that are shaped around the needs of our community and community priorities should be local police priorities.
The groups are based on the belief that policing must be open and transparent and that “consumers” should have more input into the process. If you agree, or members of your community agree, then why not join the IAG?
Wycombe Police are seeking local volunteers who will help to reflect our community. Those from minority ethnic groups, those with all kinds of disabilities, ages, religions or faiths, with or without employment, of all political persuasions and of any sexual orientation are all welcome. Whether you live or work in Wycombe itself or one of the nearby towns, are a traveler or rural farmer ~ you may be able to really make a difference.
The IAG is there to advise Thames Valley Police of the various views from the local community. There is no need to reach a consensus and the group is not responsible for the implementation or consequences of any of the recommendations. Differing personal views within the group are welcome ~ the police need to hear all sides.
