About the role
The Sussex Police and Crime Panel is looking for two enthusiastic and strategically minded people from the Sussex area to serve as co-opted independent members.
The Police and Crime Panel scrutinises the performance of Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, to ensure transparency, and to provide checks and balances in relation to the Commissioner’s actions and decisions. The Panel comprises councillors drawn from each of the 15 local authorities within the region, and two independent members. The Panel meets formally four times a year, face to face in Lewes, East Sussex. This is currently dependant on COVID-19 restrictions so until restrictions are lifted these can also take place remotely, with members joining from their homes using their personal computers.
The Independent members, through their knowledge and experience, enhance the Panel’s ability to hold the Commissioner to account.
There is no salary for the role, but travel expenses can be reclaimed.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
