Panel to oversee police job hopefuls
DERBY City Councillor Hardyal Dhindsa is to chair a panel that will oversee the work of the new Police and Crime Commissioner.
Mr Dhindsa will head up the Police and Crime panel, which is made up of 13 councillors and two independent members.
The independents are yet to be announced, but the panel of councillors is made up of seven Labour representatives, five Conservatives and one Liberal Democrat.
They represent one from each of the district or borough councils across the county, plus three co-opted members.
More than 700,000 people in Derbyshire will be eligible to vote for a new commissioner when the public go to the polls on November 15.
Four candidates are currently vying for the £75,000-a-year role.
They are UKIP's David Gale, Conservative Simon Spencer, Labour's Alan Charles and independent Rod Hutton.
