Answered By: 
The Mayor

It is the intention of the group to meet on a monthly basis. The Group is self-governing and its meetings are minuted.

The Group has an advisory and not a decision making function and will function as a Idependent Advisory Group (IAG) for knife crime, to provide independent advice on policing operations and tactics used to tackle knife crime.

MOPAC officials are in the process of working with the MPS to agree and finalise the Terms of Reference of the Group. The advisory function of this group reports into the knife crime subgroup of the Children and Young People board (CYP) feeding up to the London Crime Reduction Board (LCRB)
