Police Set Up Recruiting Booth At SLC Gay Pride

Current AffairsJesse Walker2 Comments

From KSL News:

For several years now, police officers and gay community members have joined together to work on a public safety committee that addresses issues of understanding between the two groups, but this is the first time police agencies have formally recruited at a Gay Pride event.

Police officers told us they've traditionally been weak in recruiting from the gay and lesbian community and they want this community to feel comfortable with law enforcement. To do that, they say gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people need to be represented.
