These people are police officers or police staff who have volunteered to work with deaf people or people with hearing loss.
They also promote understanding of deaf issues within the police. All PLODs are BSL trained and continue to get training in deaf issues.
All PLODs have contact with local deaf organisations and when shifts allow will go to meetings. PLODs cannot act as interpreters but help
with victims of crime or where BSL is needed. They will also help, where possible, if communication is a problem. Please click on the
PLOD link for contact details.
