Independent Advisory Group - Independent Advisor

Independent Advisory Group 

Gloucestershire Constabulary is looking for new members of the Independent Advisory Group to represent the communities that we serve.

What is the Independent Advisory Group (IAG)?

The Independent Advisory Group is a group of community members from the local area in Gloucestershire.  Its role is to provide advice and make recommendations to the Constabulary in order to assist them in delivering fair and equitable services. The IAG works in partnership with the police service as a “critical friend” where they perform a role in building confidence between our communities and the police.

IAGs were first introduced following the Stephen Lawrence enquiry and the recommendations of the subsequent McPherson report. 

Gloucestershire Constabulary was one of the first areas in the country to set-up a multi-agency advisory group.

Applying to become an Independent Advisor

Gloucestershire Constabulary is keen to expand the membership of the IAG.  We would like to hear from you if you have an interest in policing and its effect on the communities, advising officers on policing issues that may cause concern to local people:

Am I Eligible to apply?


You must be a British citizen, an EC/EEA national or a Commonwealth citizen or foreign national with no restrictions on your stay in the United Kingdom. You must have been a resident in the UK for three years, without breaks prior to the date you signed your completed application form. The calculation of the three year period of time refers to the period immediately before an application is made.

This is to satisfy the requirement to vet all applicants in an equitable manner since the UK Police Service does not currently have any means of facilitating vetting checks overseas to the extent required of those who have been resident in the UK.

Applicants who cannot be vetted cannot be appointed.

Gloucestershire Constabulary has agreed a reasonable concession to consider applications from applicants who have been outside the UK provided this does not exceed more than 3 months within the last 3 years.

It should be noted that the Chief Officer reserves the right to refuse employment without giving reason under Section 6 Police Act 1966 and the Police (Scotland) Act 1967.
