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 Conference - June 2022

The 2nd Annual PLR Conference will take place on Tuesday 28 June 2022, from 7 – 9pm on Zoom and all Police Liaison Representatives (PLRs) are invited to attend.

To register for the event please go to: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUkf-6gqTsoGtfzyedcFM26JCj-3qA8loNm

There will be a review of the PLR Scheme over the past year – what has worked well and what hasn't worked well – and a look forward to what PLRs can expect in the coming 12 months. We will hear from the senior police officers responsible for Neighbourhood Policing in Northamptonshire, and from Stephen Mold, the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner. Plus several PLRs will share how it's been from their end of the telescope.

There will be a Q&A session and we would like to receive questions in advance so they can be grouped together.
