What does the Independent Advisory Group (IAG) do?
The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) is a strategic group that seeks to improve two way communications between Lincolnshire Police and the diverse communities of the County
As independent advisors and critical friends they offer advice on the community impact of police activity. They help to resolve policing problems and advise on proposed operations, building public confidence, improving local policing performance and accountability.
The IAG is consulted with before policies and procedures are implemented.
The role of the IAG is not one of scrutiny, but provides a safeguard against disadvantaging any section of our communities through a lack of understanding, ignorance or mistaken belief.
The IAG provides a forum to have an open dialogue with individuals and receive a range of diverse views. The aim is to use the advice and recommendations from the IAG to increase trust, confidence, respect and partnership between us and the community we serve.
