Independent Police Advisory Group
What does the IPAG do?
They make a difference to policing in Kent by:
- helping police support victims of crime and anti social behaviour
- providing a link between police and Kent communities
- encouraging witnesses to come forward
- sharing community feedback with police and other agencies to help improve the services they provide
How does the IPAG work?
The IPAG consists of 15 people: the County Chair, the County Vice Chair and 13 members (District Chairs).
The County Chair and Vice Chair meet with the District Chairs, other volunteers, senior police officers and partner agencies to help improve the services provided to communities in Kent.
The 13 District Chairs meet with their local Kent Police District Commander, their local Kent Police Community Liaison Officer (CLO) as well as a panel of local members.
The IPAG was involved in a review of domestic abuse and hate crime using feedback from focus groups and surveys. They produced reports and recommendations for police to take forward.
