Letter from Met Police PCSO
We are appealing for volunteers to join our local Ward Panel. There is no experience in ward panels required. We would like people who are in touch with their local community and willing to be a voice for them. Anyone who lives, works or volunteers in an area is welcome to join that areas Ward Panel.
A Ward Panel is a group of volunteers who come together for meetings three or four times a year. The Ward Panel invite the local police, councillors and local authority to those meetings where they alert them of issues that affect the Ward. The panel jointly devise an action plan for dealing with issues and then hold police/local authority/councillors to account for actions assigned to them.
The Safer Neighbourhoods Team arrange and organise the meetings, finding a suitable date and venue. There is usually the ability to attend in person (Once covid restrictions are lifted) or to attend virtually.
The meetings last about an hour and consist of input from the Supervisor of your Local Policing Team (Safer Neighbourhoods Team) who will provide you with information on crime data, issues the police are aware of and updates on progress from previous meetings.
It is important that all members of the community are represented and heard and that these meetings are representative of the community.
