It’s back to school and now is a perfect time to apply for a scholarship! We are looking for “out” LGBTQ+ students currently enrolled in a basic law enforcement training program, such as a law enforcement academy, correctional officer academy, or 9-1-1 dispatcher academy. We offer scholarships of up to $1000! Applications are submitted entirely online.
If you are a academy trainer, college instructor or training manager, we have something for you as well! Out To Protect offers training grants to departments wishing to provide LGBTQ+ awareness training for law enforcement.
We can help you put together a training program by providing you with learning outcomes, lesson plans, and course outlines. We will even provide you with a copy of “Coming Out From Behind The Badge” and the instructor guide to go with the book! This is an ideal textbook for all levels of law enforcement training and a required read for law enforcement leaders.
Help us spread the word about these opportunities by sending this email on to your colleagues.
