National Law Enforcement Museum Hosts LGBTQIA+ Virtual Webinar

June 21 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

In honor of Pride Month, the National Law Enforcement Museum will host a program that examines the impact of LGBTQIA+ liaison programs in local police departments around the country on Friday, June 21, at 2 p.m. (ET). LGBTQIA+ liaisons serve law enforcement agencies by providing a source of information and expertise about LGBTQ+ people and the needs of the community, and have proved effective in in creating a relationship and building trust between law enforcement and local LGBTQ+ communities, yet many departments in the U.S. still don’t have an LGBTQIA+ liaison program.

This free virtual webinar will dive into the benefits of having LGBTQIA+ liaisons in local departments for both officers in the department and the communities that they serve, and it will provide a roadmap for local departments to create an LGBTQIA+ liaison program in their communities.

This is a virtual program, please register here.

*Members of law enforcement and the media interested in viewing the program and hearing from law enforcement leadership should register for the program via the Zoom link above.
