Chartered public accountant Sue Finney will sit on the ethics, transparency and audit panel at Staffordshire Police.

The group is made up of members of the public and analyse things such as the use of tasers, stop and search powers and the recording of crime.

The 54-year-old has previously worked for several local authorities, including Hampshire County Council, and has been vice-chair of governors at John Taylor High School in Barton-under-Needwood.

“I am looking forward to adding my skills to an experienced and talented panel that helps promote public confidence in policing in Staffordshire,” she said.

The group was set up as part of a bid to improve transparency across the force.

People interested in joining the panel must be aged over 18 and can apply online.
