Do you want to make a difference to local policing?


North Yorkshire Police are looking for people to join their Independent Advisory Group (IAG).

What is an IAG?

An Independent Advisory Group is a panel of volunteers who are committed to working with North Yorkshire Police by providing advice and support on a number of issues. The aim of the group is to improve local policing, with you acting as a vital link between your community and the police.

Would it suit you?

People are being sought who reflect the composition of our local communities and who have an interest in North Yorkshire. People are encouraged from all communities and backgrounds to put their names forward to help North Yorkshire Police keep your local area a safe place to work and live.

Just to say, having a criminal record or being of no fixed address does not mean you cannot take part. The Police are looking for people who care about their community and want to be involved. The only requirement is being able receive and send emails.


Don’t worry – you will not be asked to attend lengthy monthly meetings or anything like that. It’s a virtual group so everything will be done via email, surveys or online. You might just be asked that you provide your feedback within a set timescale.


The group meetings will now be held virtually as and when needed. Communications with you will be carried out using Community Messaging and email, and meetings will be held using Teams software.


By joining the IAG you’ll be invited to provide feedback and opinions on issues such as critical incidents, operational practices and planning and force policies and procedures and the impact they may have on your area.

By working with the Police, your feedback and guidance will help shape the local policing response, benefiting your local communities and beyond.

Join now!

If you’re interested in joining the virtual IAG please email and give an idea of why you’d like to take part, a summary of your experience and interests and links to your community.

Please also include your location, so you can be contacted on the matters that affect your community the most.
