The aim of the panel is to objectively scrutinise how Devon and Cornwall Police exercise the use of some of their legal powers, and to report its findings to the PCC.

The panel independently scrutinises, recognises and promotes good practice, and robustly challenges areas for improvement so that the public can be assured and confident in their police force.

The value of the panel comes from the fact that it is not part of the police, so it can help view the police as an organisation from an independent point of view.

Our aim is to develop a volunteer panel which reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. For further information about the role please visit our website www.devonandcornwall-pcc.gov.uk
