Independent Advisory Group (IAG)

About Lincolnshire IAG

The Lincolnshire Police Independent Advisory Group (IAG) exists to provide guidance, personal insight and constructive challenge in support of the county’s police force in the development and review of policing policies, procedures and practices within Lincolnshire.

The IAG is a network of individuals drawn from communities, businesses and organisations throughout Lincolnshire who are interested in supporting the county’s police force in delivering the very best service it can to all who live and work in Lincolnshire.

The IAG role is not one of formal scrutiny but is designed to support the police in meeting the strategic aims of the government’s Equality, Diversity and Human Rights (EDHR) strategy, providing a safeguard against the police service disadvantaging any section of the community through lack of understanding, ignorance or mistaken beliefs.

In achieving this it is our aim to ensure that membership of the IAG is as representative as possible of the breadth and diversity of communities in Lincolnshire.  

This page provides a range of information on the role of the IAG, its structure, the activities it is involved in, together with what is expected of IAG members and a summary of current membership.  

If you would like any more information about the role of the IAG please email us at or refer to the how to join section.

IAG Handbook

The IAG handbook outlines how the IAG works, the activities its members are involved in and what is expected of them.

Given the dynamic nature of policing the nature and role of the IAG will continually evolve to ensure that it can continue to contribute constructively and effectively to policing across Lincolnshire and the handbook will be updated periodically to reflect any changes.

How to join

For the IAG to be effective it is important that it includes a diverse membership which is both broadly representative of the population of Lincolnshire and which is capable of fulfilling the full range of activities it is established to undertake.

To achieve this we will periodically run specific recruitment campaigns. However, expressions of interest are welcome at any time from people who believe they can contribute effectively to the work of the IAG. We are especially interested in receiving applications from individuals who are able to represent the views of minority and underrepresented groups.

If you are interested in applying we would first encourage you to familiarise yourself with the content of this page and in particular the IAG Handbook.
