Best Practices of Law Enforcement in Working With LGBTQ Victims
In partnership with the National Resource Center for Reaching Victims, FORGE created a set of resources for victim service providers and trans/LGBTQ+ communities on improving relationships between trans/LGBTQ+ survivors and law enforcement.

Many studies have shown that having law enforcement serve as the “front door” of victim services has a chilling effect on LGBTQ victims, who often refuse to have voluntary contact with police. This webinar will highlight some of the most effective and replicable law enforcement practices being implemented across the country to improve law enforcement/LGBTQ community relations. Law enforcement and allied professionals are the target audience for this virtual training.
