My Police and Crime Plan committed to ensuring that there is a designated LGBT Liaison Officer for every borough.  In total, there are approximately 155 police officers, police staff and PCSOs who act as designated LGBT officers across all boroughs and specialist units. There are also over 900 specialist Community Safety Unit officers who investigate all hate crime.
