New Grant Program Supporting Creation Of LGBT Liaison Programs
Is Your Agency Creating An
LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison Program?
We have a new grant program now available to help local law enforcement agencies create and implement an LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison Program.
Up to $1000 is available to help fund an event, activity or to purchase supplies to support liaison activities.
LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison Programs are proven to be highly effective in building trust between a law enforcement agency and the community it serves. LGBTQ+ people live in every jurisdiction served by law enforcement. A liaison provides a point of contact for individuals and organizations. The liaison becomes a valuable resource for the law enforcement agency especially when dealing with complicated issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community. We believe every agency should have an LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison position.
- Funding must be used to create and implement a new LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison Program.
- Funding may not be used for any personnel costs.
- The chief executive must commit to developing and implementing an LGBT Law Enforcement Liaison Program.
