Warwickshire Constabulary has appointed Alison Parr as its first

head of media and PR.



Parr, who joins from Staffordshire University where she was head of

media relations, heads a new four-strong department and expects to

appoint more staff shortly. She reports to assistant chief constable

Peter Furnace and is responsible for press relations, sponsorship,

marketing and internal communications.



The PR function was previously split between different departments,

including strategic planning, which handled some publications and the

business initiatives unit, which handled some marketing.



Warwickshire’s PR agenda includes addressing the Crime and Disorder Act,

which encourages police forces to develop partnerships with local

authorities to promote community safety. Parr will also look at lobbying

Government for greater funding.



She said: ’My job is to maximise the good work which has been going on

here and see how we can support the aims of the police service.’
