Have you ever seen a singing, signing police officer? What about a group of police officers, one Deaf popstar and the CEO of SignHealth?
Hampshire Police have a specialist team that support the Deaf community.
Known as PLOD (Police Link Officers for Deaf People) they provide better access for Deaf, Deafblind, hard of hearing and speech impaired people.
Before sign2sing began, we set PLOD a challenge. Helen Haines and Glen Barham, two PLOD officers, explain….
As it turns out, PLOD were fantastic!
Deaf popstar Fletch (bottom row, third in from left) and Steve Powell, SignHealth CEO (second row, second in) supported the team. As did InterpreterNow Managing Director, John Maidens (second row, first in from right). Have a look for yourself…
The team were fantastic fundraisers as well, giving SignHealth a brilliant £672. PLOD added, “DeafHope and Young DeafHope from SignHealth Charity provide support when needed. It’s this work we supported through Sign2Sing.”
A big thank you to everyone involved, especially Helen and Glen.
