Safer neighbourhood panel

Community-minded residents in the Staffordshire Moorlands are being encouraged to join a pioneering new panel to influence policing in their neighbourhoods.

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

What will the Safer Neighbourhood Panel do?

The panels will be made up of residents, local councillors and magistrates and will meet regularly with their area's local policing commander. They will 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 will mean 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 will sit 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 is available to print out at the bottom of this page.

For further information, contact the Council's Community Safety team 

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.
