Safer neighbourhood panel

The Safer Neighbourhood Panel was launched by Staffordshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis to help hold local police commanders to account.

What does the Safer Neighbourhood Panel do?

The panel is be made up of residents, local councillors and magistrates and meets regularly with the area's local policing commander. They influence local policing and community safety, scrutinise the work done by the police in the area, give feedback to their communities and examine the impact of community resolutions and restorative justice where they live.

Being on the panel means you are well placed to keep your local community informed about policing in your area as well as being able to provide police commanders with a public perspective on policing. The panel sits at least quarterly.

How do I get involved?

If you would like to be part of the panel you will need to fill in an application form, which can be found on the Staffordshire Commissioner's website: 

Do I need any previous experience?

You don't need any previous experience of policing to be able to join the panel just an interest in what matters in your communities and a desire to make a positive difference.
