I can confirm that the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland does hold some of this information.
The recorded information held by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner about Cleveland Police’s Independent Advisory Groups and their membership only goes as far back as November 2015, as is when the OPCC took over the administration of the IAG meetings from Cleveland Police.Therefore all of the information in this response will relate to information dating from November 2015 to the present day.
