LGBTQ+ Liaison Officer

In the early 1990's, in an effort to improve community relations, the Dallas Police Department created the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) Liaison position. This was created to provide community members with a direct point of contact to help foster positive relationships and address unique safety concerns within the LGBTQ+ community.

These efforts are focused on serving residents and fellow employees of the Dallas Police Department. One of the most important tasks of the LGBTQ+ Liaison position is to conduct training for new police recruits and provide ongoing, updated training for current employees. This position's main focus is to help foster an inclusive environment both internally and externally so that all members of the LGBTQ+ community feel safe in reporting issues that may be impacting them.

Through ongoing, proactive community-driven initiatives and engagement, the LGBTQ+ Liaison serves as an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community in an effort to build trust between the Dallas Police Department and the community it serves.
