Independent Advisory Group
The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) is a group of Norfolk residents from different community backgrounds who are prepared to give their opinions and advice with the aim of improving the quality of policing services.
The group has a key role in helping to increase the public’s trust and confidence in the police, particularly amongst minority communities. They help with monitoring the quality of service the Constabulary provides to the diverse communities of Norfolk with particular emphasis on hate crime, critical/major incidents, policies and procedures, and Stop and Search.
Voluntary members of the IAG meet monthly in the evening, at Police HQ in Wymondham and are supported by staff from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCCN). These meetings are currently held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic. Members usually remain on the group for three years and new members are recruited when there is a vacancy. Travel expenses are met.
Due to the confidential nature of some of the business discussed, these meetings are not open to the public with the exception of the Annual General Meeting held in December each year.
