THE Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Panel — the body that scrutinises the performance of police and crime commissioner Simon Hayes — is seeking a new recruit.

Residents from the two counties have been invited to apply to serve on the panel, which is looking to co-opt a new independent member to sit alongside local authority councillors.

The panel's role includes holding Mr Hayes to account, reviewing the police and crime plan, making recommendations on police precept levels and reviewing Mr Hayes' proposed appointments of senior police staff.

Panel chairman, Isle of Wight Councillor Dave Stewart said: "A vacancy has arisen for one of the two independent co-opted members on the panel. The role of a panel member is an important and demanding one, and we are seeking a committed and energetic resident to serve from July for a two year term.

"This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the new and very different arrangements for police governance and accountability."

Recruitment packs can be downloaded at http://www3.hants.gov.uk/pcp-recruitment

The closing date for applications is April10.

C R-S I think you will find that the sort of person you are looking for, is already very active and hasn't time to take anything else on.

Until.

He/she sees that it needs to be done and somehow FINDS the time ;-)

I would personally like to see involvement from members of the community who are not so energetic but have time to input via computer so maybe an older person to compliment the young energetic go getters, someone with time and commitment plus life experience.

My mother is 78 has used a pc for 9 years (self taught) but only discovered last week why some words are highlighted and was very proud of herself when she told me she new what a link was on her computer.

Clicking the link and reading the info too difficult for some?
