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.
