The Wichita Police Department is committed to ensuring that all members of the community are treated fairly, equally and with dignity. In August 2016 the Wichita Police Department added its first LGBTQ Liaison assignments. The Liaison officers are responsible for connecting with organizations, business and individuals of the LGBTQ community in order to ensure that they have access to all of the services our department provides.
The objective of the LGBT liaison’s duties is to foster a positive relationship between the Wichita 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.
- Develop and provide training to members of the department on LGBTQ related topics.
- Provide information on relevant law enforcement issues as they relate to the LGBTQ community.
- Represent the Wichita Police Department at LGBTQ community events.
