Blue Light

Independent Advisory Group ?

Councillor Phil Bateman said today ” I have received this note from West Midlands Police it may be of interest to residents of Wednesfield North. If so perhaps you could follow the instructions and contact Sgt Alicoon.”West Midlands Police is in the process of establishing an Independent Advisory Group (IAG), therefore we are looking for expressions of interest from residents and organisations across the West Midlands who may want to take part in this important piece of work. The purpose of the group will primarily be to: Provide a two-way dialogue between members of Faith / Belief within the community and the police service.

Mobilise and enable active citizens to work in partnership with the police and other agencies to tackle the issues that concern members of the community around Religion. 

Provide transparency around cases of Hate Crime towards a person(s) targeted by Religion (where appropriate and sanitised) either to identify learning or sharing best practice/good news stories. 

At this time we are simply seeking expressions of interest, so please do not feel that an early reply is committing you to anything at this stage.

This is a voluntary role and it is envisaged that meetings will take place quarterly, where possible at various locations around the West Midlands.

Could you please send expressions of interest to Sgt Simon Alicoon 0263 by emailing: s.alicoon@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk directly, please feel free to also email Sgt Alicoon with any questions you may have.

Please ensure replies are received by 1st September 2018 where possible.

Thank you

Sgt Simon Alicoon
West Midlands Police
Force Operational/Tactical Crime Lead – Religion
