Empowering Parish and Town Councils in Northamptonshire

Police Liaison Representative

Here you will find everything related to the Northamptonshire Police Liaison Representative (PLR) Scheme, from the role description, new sign up link and upcoming events.

The PLR Scheme, is where every parish and town council and parish meeting appoints a person (could be a councillor, officer, or member of the public) to act as a single point of contact for the police. It is the same principle as the Parish Paths Warden Scheme for rights of way and the Highways Representative Scheme for highways. The scheme was trialled a few years ago in Daventry district, but was not adequately managed so it rather fizzled out. This time, Northamptonshire Police has asked Northants CALC to manage and administer the scheme.

PLR Launch 22 April 2021

112 participants joined our Zoom launch of the Police Liaison Representative (PLR) Scheme. More than 150 parish and town councils and parish meetings in Northamptonshire have now appointed a PLR, which is a great effort. Thank you! If your council has not yet done so, please don't miss out! The meeting heard from Chief Superintendent Ash Tuckley, Head of Local Policing, and Chief Inspector Pete Basham who is putting together the new Local Policing Beats in Northamptonshire. The PLR acts as a single point of contact between the council and Northamptonshire Police, and the scheme is the first of its kind in England. It is parish and town councils and the police working together to make communities safer and to make Northamptonshire an unwelcome place for criminals.

Policing with a purpose
