There are more than 100 Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers (LAGLOs) in police stations and offices across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, including in our force enquiry and 999 call handling centres. It's their job to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender victims of crime. If you've been assaulted, threatened or intimidated because of who you're attracted to or who you are, you can call us on 101, or 999 in an emergency, and ask to speak to a LAGLO. We don't tolerate homophobic and transphobic hate crimes, and neither should you. http://www.hampshire.police.uk/Internet/advice/lgbtpolicing.htm A subtitled version of this film is available at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9iKHX2a_QU

On Tuesday (Nov 10) we took part in an emergency training exercise at the International Port in Portsmouth. As well as testing our response to more complex incidents, such exercises provide a valuable opportunity to train with our partners in the other emergency services and develop our knowledge and protocols. We also gain enormous benefits from working with outside agencies such as Brittany Ferries and Whitaker Tankers. Given the importance of the International Port to Portsmouth, this exercise provided a unique opportunity to test our joined up response to an incident.

#BehindTheBadge Ever wondered what happens at one of our training exercises? Well we took a sneak peek… In our second Behind the Badge feature, we have gone behind the scenes to see how our officers work with our blue light colleagues to prepare for serious incidents. It is very important for us to regularly train with Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and South Central Ambulance Service because it means we are ready when you need us. This film shows us responding to a firearms incident at a hotel. We join in at the point where firearms officers have made the building safe for paramedics and firefighters to go in and treat the injured.

Sergeant Glen Barham uses British Sign Language to explain more about our Police Link Officers for Deaf people work. The transcript of what Glen is signing is: Here we'll explain about contacting the police in an emergency but what is an emergency? Well, an emergency is when something bad happens for example if someone attacks you or someone else is being attacked; or people are causing trouble and that is happening now; if crime is happening and the people responsible are still about. Other emergencies may be when you need an ambulance urgently for someone who is ill or injured; or if there is a fire, or car crash with people trapped; or possibly if the road is blocked ... something like that. Those awful things are all emergencies. There are various ways you can contact us in an Emergency. You can use SMS, text messaging from your mobile phone to text to 999 but before you use that, you must be registered. Getting registered is easy and you can register now. You simply text the word REGISTER from your mobile phone to 999. Wait for a response. Read the response and if you agree to the information, send a reply text with the word YES to 999. You will then receive a text message to confirm that you are registered. Once registered, if you need to contact the emergency services in an emergency, you can text to 999. There is more information on the website: www.emergencysms.org.uk and there are more BSL Video Clips on that website. If you have a minicom phone, you can use the minicom to dial 18000 - that is the Text Relay Emergency Service. You can also fax us - Hampshire Police have a 24-hour fax number: 01962 874201. Finally, if you cannot text from a mobile phone, or contact through minicom or fax, ask another person to contact the Emergency Voice 999 service on your behalf. One last thing to mention - many people in Hampshire know that Hampshire Constabulary have a text service, 80999. Well, 80999 is available at the moment but it is best to use the Emergency 999 text service because that is a national number that works right across the UK. It is possible that in the future that the local 80999 number will end. The best thing for you to do is to register now with the national Emergency 999 text service. If you have any problems registering, please contact a Link Officer and we will be happy to help. Thank you.
