What is a Ward Panel
The Shirley South Ward Panel is a group of community members who either live or work in the area, together with partner agencies, such as councillors, resident associations and neighbourhood watch, that meet with the local police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) at least every 3 months to set local SNT ward priorities and then hold the SNT to account for their actions and progress in addressing the agreed priorities.

The Role of the Ward Panel
At the panel meetings, members have the opportunity to raise and discuss local crime reports, concerns and issues that are affecting the local community directly with the SNT officers. In reporting these issues and concerns, local residents will be helping to shape and deliver the local  police priorities. It is important that the wider views of local residence are canvassed through various means in order to involve all sections of the local community and the local police as part of a continuous cycle of feedback, review and action.
