Safer Neighbourhood Panels, set up by the Staffordshire Commissioner, are made up of local residents who meet regularly with their area’s local policing commander.
The panels shape local policing and community safety and shine the spotlight on the work done by police in their area to ensure greater transparency and help build public confidence. They examine the impact of policing, community resolutions and restorative justice, on their communities.
Panel members receive training to help them carry out their role so that they can be involved in innovative work such as examining body camera footage captured during “stop and searches” by local officers.
Panels are established in Cannock Chase, Staffordshire Moorlands, South Staffordshire, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Lichfield, Stafford, Tamworth, East Staffordshire and the two local policing team areas of Stoke-on-Trent.
Safer Neighbourhood Panels give local people the opportunity to hold policing in their area to account.
