Police and Crime Panel recruitment
The Gloucestershire Police and Crime Panel is searching for a highly committed and energetic person from Gloucestershire to help oversee and scrutinise the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
The Police and Crime Panel is a joint body of the local councils served by the Gloucestershire Constabulary that works to check and balance the performance of the PCC. The commissioner is required to consult with the panel on his plans, the police budget, council tax levels, and the appointment of a chief constable.
This is a challenging but important role. The typical level of commitment required will be 1 to 2 days a month. Meetings will generally be held during office hours at Gloucestershire County Council. The position is voluntary but panel members can claim reasonable travel expenses and will receive an induction and appropriate training.
Cllr Roger Wilson, Chairman of the Gloucestershire Police and Crime Panel said: "We are looking for someone dedicated to helping Gloucestershire be a safe and welcoming county.
"Being part of the panel is a great way to contribute by supporting and holding the Police and Crime Commissioner to account."
