The Metropolitan Police Service issued Practice Advice in September 2005 to provide "Guidance on Setting Up and Maintaining Neighbourhood Panels". The process of the panel is set out in a seven-stage model. The guidance notes that " The 5th stage in this process, public choices, is where decisions are made."

Under what legislation are these decisions made?

This process is not covered by legislation but it is best practice based on national research. This ensures that the Metropolitan Police meets the requirements set out within the police reform policy paper Building Communities, Beating Crime (2004) and the National Community Safety Plan (2006-9).
