Subject: [MPD-2d] MPD Seeking Public Input on GLLU Expansion


The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) would like to hear from the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) community before finalizing any plans to enhance MPD's liaison units. MPD is engaging the public in the development of these units, with the ultimate goal of increasing citywide access to these units. 

Over the next few weeks, there will be group meetings in the GLBT community to solicit input in all seven police districts. These meetings will help the Department gather perceptions of MPD and hear concerns about the services MPD provides to members of the GLBT community.  The information from these meetings will be incorporated into a final plan for enhancements to the GLLU.

Details about the dates and times of the GLLU-specific meetings are provided below, as well as in the attached public flyer; feel free to distribute it to interested parties.  For those residents who are unable to attend the meetings, the MPD has created an e-mail address to allow another means of submission of suggestions and/or concerns regarding the liaison units: For more information about the meetings or any of the MPD liaison units, please contact the following:
