Lesbian and
Gay Liaison Officers


Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to eliminating discrimination and building and maintaining good working relationships with all of the county’s diverse communities and our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities are a very important part of this. 

The Constabulary is also determined to ensure that LGBT communities feels comfortable to approach the force should they ever need to and build confidence within them that they will be taken seriously and treated with sensitivity.  As part of this, the Constabulary has 80 Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers (LAGLOs) which are based all over the county and have been specially trained to support people from LGBT communities.


All police officers are able to support the LGBT community, but LAGLOs are in place to provide extra understanding.LAGLOs


LAGLOs aim to:


  • encourage the LGBT community to report homophobic incidents to police and to give information, advice and support to victims and witnesses of crimes


  • positively engage with LGBT communities and develop good working relationships with relevant partners and key community groups dedicated to LGBT issues


  • advise and support fellow police officers dealing with homophobic incidents


  • raise awareness amongst colleagues and promote understanding about the needs of the LGBT community


How to contact a LAGLO

LAGLOs can be reached by calling the non-emergency number Telephone 101. In an emergency or if a crime is on-going, report it immediately via Telephone 999.  The support of a LAGLO can then be requested if required. We will treat what you tell us sensitively and in confidence.
