Who could be a KIN?
A KIN is someone or a group of people who represent a community in
their local area. This could be anyone from a teacher or shop
keeper, to a church leader, support group, chairperson of a women’s
group or a friend of someone who has a disability.
What is involved in being a KIN?
The role of a KIN involves a person or group acting as a
representative of the community unit they belong to in the local
area they live. KINs act as a conduit between the community
they are representing and the police. As a KIN, your local
police may consult you from time to time on issues relevant to the
particular community group you represent.
