Police link officers for deaf people

We have a number of police officers and staff who act as police link officers for deaf people (PLOD) and are available for advice and information.

Our link officers:

  • hold qualifications in British Sign Language 
  • use their skills to assist in enquiries
  • provide advice and information
  • don't provide interpreting for evidential procedures

We can also, subject to availability, make use of professional lipspeakers. Ask an officer to contact one if this is what you're used to.

You can contact PLOD by clicking the 'start' button below to use our quick and simple online form.
