When the Police and Crime Commissioners start work there will also be panels set up to look at some of the issues involved and to make sure there is some democratic scutiny of the work.
The panels will have Councillors on them but are also allowed to co opt other people on, who might be particular experts or members of the public with an interest.
Anyway, on Merseyside, the panel organisers have decided they want to co opt on two members of the public and are advertising for volunteers.
I have to say I don't think this advertising has been particularly good or active but if you are interested in the role, or just in finding out about more, here (below) is a link to the on line advert. The deadline is mid October.
