The role of independent advisors is best described as a “critical friend in time of need”
If you would like to find out more, Inspector Jones is holding a meeting on the 24th of September at Waltham Forest Town Hall at 6pm.
IAGs a group of non-police people who can:
• Provide advice and guidance to the police to help prevent critical incidents escalating (these may be external or internal incidents)
• Provide a sounding board for the police to understand the potential impact on communities of police practices and operations.
Four corporate IAGs – Race, Disability, LGBT and Trident (gangs, guns, knife crime) provide the Metropolitan Police Service with strategic advice on specific communities. Every borough has an IAG made up of citizens from the local communities, advising on local issues.
