    South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

Ref: GSe67085

The South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner is looking to recruit new members to join the established Independent Ethics Panel (IEP), as a number of existing members have reached the end of their term of office.

Policing in the UK is by consent.  This requires the police to act ethically, transparently and with integrity.  The IEP helps the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Chief Constable maintain and improve the trust and confidence of the public and partners in South Yorkshire Police (SYP).

The IEP is an essential element of the PCC’s governance arrangements.  It supports SYP in embedding the Policing Code of Ethics in its culture and demonstrating this through the way it thinks and behaves in respect of SYP’s workforce, and externally with all South Yorkshire communities.  As a collective, members will bring knowledge and experience from a variety of different backgrounds to make a meaningful contribution and add value to the policing of South Yorkshire. 

We are therefore seeking candidates with integrity, competence, credibility and a passion for making South Yorkshire a safe place to live, learn and work. To be successful you must be strategic in your approach and be able to create and foster constructive relationships.  An understanding of the issues and challenges surrounding discrimination and disadvantage would be of particular interest.  We are also very keen to improve the diversity of the Panel, to ensure it better reflects the communities we serve.

If you have these attributes, live in South Yorkshire, and can commit to attendance and preparation for around six formal meetings a year, and assurance activity in between meetings, we strongly encourage you to apply.
