South Yorkshire Police has four district Independent Advisory Panels for Minority Communities.

Each plays a valuable role of ‘critical friend’ to the Force. They are not formal scrutiny boards, but are there to ensure the policies, procedures and practices across each of the four districts meets the aims of the Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Strategy, delivering accessible and responsive policing to minority communities in South Yorkshire.

Each panel comprises voluntary members from various communities across the county, and provides advice on issues such as hate crime, stop and search, BME recruitment, domestic abuse and trust and confidence in South Yorkshire Police.
