Protest Liaison Officers

Facilitating peaceful protest in Sussex

One of the core functions of the police service is to facilitate peaceful protest. We are always looking for ways to develop our service in this area across Surrey and Sussex.

For this reason we have trained Protest Liaison Officers in Surrey and Sussex. The Liaison Officer's primary role is to engage with protest groups prior to, during and after any event. They work alongside groups who wish to protest peacefully, always balancing the needs of the wider community.

We hope that by having these nominated officers in place we will be able to build relationships which will benefit protest groups, businesses, residents, visitors and our service too. If protestors share their intentions with us beforehand, this enables us to put the right measures in place to facilitate a safe environment for groups and provide a proportionate policing presence.

Whilst Surrey and Sussex now have trained Police Liaison Officers, Sergeant Mark Redbourn is the point of contact for the Brighton and Hove area and will happily receive all enquiries relating to protests. Mark has worked in Brighton & Hove for the last nine years. He started working on the Response Team which attends emergency calls and then moved across to the local Investigation Team.

The team can be contacted Monday to Friday on:

Phone 101 extension 550800
Email  brightonand.hoveplo@sussex.pnn.police.uk
Twitter @SusPolPLO
Facebook Sussex Police Brighton & Hove Protest Liaison Officer

Alongside this team we have additional officers to support protest groups when events are taking place. These officers will always be clearly identifiable as they will wear light blue tabards with 'Police Liaison Officer' on the back.

Anyone can make contact with the team or follow us on Twitter to find out more about the work we are undertaking in the city, to give us their views and to discuss any issues with us.
