Fancy holding local policing to account?
Hackney Local Scrutiny Policing panel is looking for new members!
If you are interested in tackling policing issues in Hackney, here is your chance to get involved, Hackney have now opened applications for Hackney's Local Scrutiny Policing Panel and shared the following information:
The Local Scrutiny Policing panel are working in partnership with the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to form a new local policing scrutiny panel which will be made up of volunteers from local communities who will work together with MOPAC to hold the police to account for their use of stop and search, handcuffing, use of tasers and intimate searches. The panel will review police data, decisions and practice to make sure police action and the use of police powers in communities is fair to all.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 21 June and you must be aged 15 and over and live, work or study in Hackney to apply. Please also be aware that in the interests of increasing diversity of community representation on the Panel, members of the panel shall not be a member of any other police related panel or group. However, if you are currently part of an existing community policing panel or group but would like to be considered for this role on the basis that you will discontinue your involvement in your existing group, please indicate this in your application.
If you would like to find out more about this role or the background to it or if you have any further questions please email MOPAC's community engagement team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
