WHAT IS PAHELO?
The Police Association of Higher Education Liaison Officers was formed in September 2001 and has approximately 60 members currently representing English, Welsh & Scottish Universities (membership is open to Irish Universities too!). The Association provides a forum for its members to exchange knowledge, keep up to date with crime trends, legislation, and other issues attached to Higher Education Institutions. It has specific aims to promote the importance of the role of the Police Higher Education Liaison Officer nationally and to all UK police services; to work with national partners, for example the Home Office, Associations of University Chief Security Officers (AUCSO) and National Union of Students; to reduce Higher Education (HE) campus and student related crime, and to be the focus and consultants of improving levels of policing Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK.
HOW IS PAHELO RUN?
PAHELO is run by a Committee (see How to Contact Us).
The Committee represents Members at National Conferences and Meetings, and is a member of the National Police Chiefs Councils (NPCC) Burglary Working Group.
Throughout the year Members exchange information & initiatives via the Polka Forum which is consolidated at workshops and seminars we hold around the UK throughout the year. Such as the last one we held in Cardiff in July 2017
