The mission of the Hartford Police Department’s LGBTQ Liaison includes:

  • Fostering positive relations between the LGBTQ community and the Hartford Police Department by providing a liaison for community members who may be victims of crime, or otherwise in need of services. 
  • Assist in productive dialogue with patrol, Community Policing and various investigative units concerning LGBTQ related crimes through diversity and sensitivity training.
  • Works in partnership with other City agencies, other law enforcement entities, and community based organizations by conducting community outreach, education, and involvement in other related LGBTQ related issues.
  • To encourage the respectful exchange of mutual support among LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ Officers in the areas of equal opportunity in recruitment, hiring, retention, discipline, promotion, and benefits.
  • To create a safe, secure, and non-hostile work environment in which LGBTQ Officers are supported and mentored through the challenge of “coming out” in the workplace.
