Greg Miraglia

Greg Miraglia has a Masters Degree in Education Administration and Bachelors Degree in Business. He teaches five courses in LGBT studies, a variety of law enforcement courses including all human relations, work place harassment, community policing, and one of the only state certified hate crimes investigations courses in the State of California.  In 2016, he was named Dean Emeritus at Napa Valley College after retiring as dean of career technical education.  He continues to serve as a part time faculty member at Napa Valley College, Santa Rosa Junior College and City College of San Francisco.

In 2011, he authored curriculum for an accredited LGBT Studies Program now offered by Napa Valley College.  This was the second program of its type offered by a California college.  In July of 2013, Mr. Miraglia was awarded the “Dr. John W. Rice Diversity Award” by the Chancellor of the California Community College system for his work developing hate crime prevention and diversity education programs.  He is a nationally recognized speaker and expert on LGBT issues in the law enforcement profession.

Mr. Miraglia serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Matthew Shepard Foundation and is also a radio program host and producer on Outbeat Radio, a weekly LGBT program on KRCB Radio. Mr. Miraglia has over 35 years of experience in law enforcement with three different police departments working most recently as deputy chief of the Napa Valley Railroad Police Department.

After coming out himself in 2004, Mr. Miraglia decided to work with others in law enforcement who are still struggling with the pervasive homophobia that still exists in many areas of the law enforcement, the fire service, and EMS profession.

“The best law enforcement work is done by people for people. We are a profession of people and to that end we share many common human attributes including our sexuality. The variety of sexual orientation found in men and women transcends all races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, and countries. It also transcends every law enforcement agency serving and protecting every community. It is not a choice, but rather a part of how we were created. Although it can be masked, it cannot ever be changed. It is a part of every human being who carries a badge.” Greg Miraglia, M.A. Ed.
