People are being encouraged to play their part in influencing local policing and community safety issues.
An independent member is being sought for the Norfolk Police and Crime Panel, which scrutinises the work of the County’s Police and Crime Commissioner.
Cllr William Richmond, chairman of the Police and Crime Panel, said: “This is a crucial and challenging role, which offers you the chance to provide independent and constructive input to support the commissioner.
“We would welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds and experience, including ethnic minority groups, victims of crime and members of the business, voluntary and community sectors.”
Police and crime commissioners are elected to oversee local policing and the Police and Crime Panel holds commissioners to account. The panel is made up of local councillors and independent members.
The panel is looking for one person who has knowledge and skills in this area to serve as a co-opted independent member from September 2017. The role will require, on average, three to 10 hours a month, with meetings held during the day at locations across Norfolk. The role is unpaid but travel and some expenses will be reimbursed.
