The Police Area Commander for Bracknell Forest and Wokingham Borough, Superintendent Felicity Parker, is in the process of developing the Independent Advisory Group (IAG) for Wokingham Borough and would like to connect with people interested in getting involved.
Superintendent Felicity Parker writes
“The purpose of the Independent Advisory Group is to get local people involved in policing. Members of the IAG are there to bring challenge to me as the leader of the local command area, to provide me with ideas and a steer on how we can better police the area. I can also ask the group for advice when facing any particular issues; whether it being an issue that is of national interest that is putting a spotlight on policing, or something that is affecting the local community.
The group can help me understand what more I need to do to support residents, younger people, or those in the minority in the community.
The meetings take place in the evenings, last approximately two hours and are generally every 3 months.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the IAG, there is an application form to complete and then a brief (virtual at the moment) meeting with me to discuss the role further.
To join the Wokingham IAG, applicants should navigate to the ‘Join Us’ page on the external website – www.thamesvalley.police.uk, then navigate to Roles, Volunteers, View our current opportunities and then search ‘IAG’ which is always carrying open vacancies.
