The Iowa City Police Department has three officers assigned as liaisons to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) community. The Department’s goals for having the liaisons is to:

  • Foster positive relations between the LGBTQ community and the Iowa City Police Department by providing a liaison for community members who may be crime victims or have information or issues of concern that the police department could assist with.
  • Assist in productive dialogue with investigative units concerning LGBTQ-related crimes.
  • Work in partnership with other city agencies, other law enforcement entities and community-based organizations, education and involvement in other LGBTQ-related issues.
  • Maintain an interactive role in recruit-based and in-service police trainings regarding the LGBTQ community.
