Independent Advisory Group
The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) is a group of Norfolk residents from different community backgrounds who are prepared to give their opinions and advice with the aim of improving the quality of policing services.
The group has a key role in helping to increase the public’s trust and confidence in the police, particularly amongst minority communities. They help with monitoring the quality of service the Constabulary provides to the diverse communities of Norfolk with particular emphasis on hate crime, critical/major incidents, policies and procedures, and Stop and Search.
Voluntary members of the IAG meet bi-monthly in the evening, at Police HQ in Wymondham and are supported by staff from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCCN). Members usually remain on the group for three years and new members are recruited when there is a vacancy. Travel expenses are met.
Due to the confidential nature of some of the business discussed, these meetings are not open to the public with the exception of the Annual General Meeting to be held September each year.

Disability Advisory Forum
The Disability Advisory Forum (DAF) provides an opportunity for people with disabilities to have a say and influence decisions made by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Norfolk Constabulary as well as helping to increase public confidence in the police, particularly among those with a physical, mental, sensory or learning difficulties.
Members help the police to gain a better understanding by giving their views and opinions based on their own experience.
The Forum members have been involved in projects such as the Safer Places Scheme and offered advice on issues such as Hate Crime and officer/staff training. The Forum is also represented at meetings of the Independent Advisory Group to share information and member feedback.
The members of the Forum meet four times a year, during the day, at Norfolk Police headquarters in Wymondham and are supported by the Constabulary’s Diversity Team. Members usually remain on the forum for three years and new members are recruited when there is a vacancy. Assistance with travel and/or expenses is provided.
Due to the confidential nature of some of the business discussed, the meetings are not open to the public with the exception of the Annual General Meeting held in July each year.
Vacancies for volunteers will be advertised when required but if you wish to discuss joining the group, please contact the Norfolk Police Diversity Team.
