A NEW group has been set up to give independent advice to the police in Suffolk.

An Independent Advisory Group (IAG) has been created to help ensure Suffolk Police Authority and Suffolk Constabulary provide a high quality of service.

The group, which is made up of volunteers drawn from communities across Suffolk, will provide independent advice on a range of policing issues, including developing the plans and policies which shape the way the county is policed.

IAG members may also be asked to advise on specific issues, such as the impact of a major incident on a particular community.

At the launch, the Chair of the Suffolk Police Authority, Gulshan Kayembe, told members: “Suffolk Police Authority and Suffolk Constabulary are committed to delivering the highest quality policing service to the people of Suffolk.

“In order to make sure we are providing a fair and equitable service, it is essential we take the needs of local communities into account.

“To do this we need the advice of people willing to help us understand the issues affecting local communities, including those from minority ethnic backgrounds and other minority interest groups.”

Members of the IAG can be contacted via the Police Authority by telephone on 01473 782777.
