News and appeals
Could you join our Independent Advisory Group?

Have you ever wanted to voice your opinions or concerns on the policing of your local area?
Here's your chance to volunteer to become a member of an Independent Advisory Group (IAG), acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the local police teams across Adur, Worthing and Horsham.

We're looking for enthusiastic members of the public who have a general interest in policing, to join an Independent Advisory Group.

The role will provide feedback and advice on how our actions are interpreted by members of the public and to seek to improve two way communications between Adur, Worthing and Horsham Police and the diverse communities of the area.
IAGs consider local issues such as stop and search figures, hate crime statistics, critical incidents or issues raised as relevant and topical to the public.
IAGs aim to:
Maximise the trust and confidence of the diverse communities of Adur, Worthing and Horsham, through communication, exchanges of views and discussion of police issues;

Provide a forum for the community to help shape service delivery;

Enable Sussex Police locally, to develop policies and procedures that are both accessible and transparent;

Increase our engagement with communities and help expand the potential for community involvement in policing;

Act as a ‘critical friend’ to review policing and policy decisions and debrief incidents and operations.
Whilst the IAG’s role is not one of scrutiny, it does aim to provide a safeguard in helping us recognise and understand the impact of policies or procedures being implemented that may disadvantage or unfairly affect people in our communities.
Its ultimate aim is to contribute positively to the effectiveness of policing across Adur, Worthing and Horsham; to increase public trust, confidence, respect, accountability and partnership which exists between the police and the communities it serves.  

Meetings will be held quarterly and will allow a representation of local people to have a voice in policing. Independent Advisory Group members will be entitled to the reimbursement of reasonable costs incurred by participating, such as travel.

Chief Inspector Sarah Leadbeatter, District Commander for Adur, Worthing and Horsham said: “I am proud of the work my staff do on a daily basis to keep communities safe. The police however, cannot even begin to tackle local issues of public concern if we do not know, understand and engage with the communities we serve.

“We must always work to have, maintain and grow, the trust and confidence of local communities, to work with us to tackle issues of crime and disorder in a transparent, inclusive and accessible way.

“If you would like more information on becoming a member of the IAG, please contact Sergeant Peter Allan at or 07715 233694. I look forward to working with you.”
