The Metropolitan Police are recruiting people over 18 to become members of Police Encounter Panels. These are being set up to give communities an opportunity to provide feedback on policing encounters by watching body-worn video (BWV) footage and offering their views on what went well or what the Met could improve.

The main purpose of these panels is to improve public trust and confidence in the Met, by allowing the community to offer appropriate scrutiny and feedback of policing encounters.

The panels aim to do this by:

  • incorporating the community experience of policing
  • using these experiences to improve the way officers understand interactions with the public
  • allowing local communities to review broader aspects of local policing practice.

The Met are particularly interested in recruiting members from those communities that are most impacted by policing encounters (especially those aged under 25), but welcome applications from all community members.
