The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department is committed to ensuring that all members of the community are treated fairly, equally and with dignity. Because that commitment extends to the LGBTQ+ community, both within our department and in our neighborhoods, we have established a committee of both sworn officers and professional (civilian) staff who serve as liaisons to the LGBTQ+ community of Kansas City, Kansas.
These liaisons serve to foster a positive relationship between the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department and the LGBTQ+ community by:
- acting as points of contact for members of the LGBTQ+ community and officers who interact with the LGBTQ community
- developing and providing training to members of the department on LGBTQ+ related topics
- providing information on relevant law enforcement issues as they relate to the LGBTQ+ community
- representing the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department at LGBTQ+ community events
If you would like more information about the committee or are interested in engagement events, please, reach out.
