Answer for Safer Neighbourhood Panels

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The review of ward panels is being led by Territorial Policing and commenced last year as part of the design of the Local Policing Model. As part of the review, Safer Neighbourhood sergeants, inspectors and chief inspectors, and Ward Panel and Independent Advisory Group (IAG) members have been surveyed. The survey findings were used to inform a recent meeting with Ward panels and IAGs and a further meeting is proposed in June. Further consultation with a wider group of Ward panel members will take place and it is anticipated that the process will be completed by September. The learning from the consultation will be shared at that time.
