Out On Patrol is an incorporated non-profit society through the Province of British Columbia, serving LGBTQ2S+ law enforcement and the community.
Although the society has a strong relationship with several law enforcement agencies, it is completely independent and is not directly involved in law enforcement matters.
Working in law enforcement can be mentally taxing and emotionally draining. Having a strong peer support network is key to mental resiliency and stress relief. Out On Patrol provides a peer support network for LGBTQ2S+ members of law enforcement.
There have been great strides over the years to bridge the gap between the LGBTQ2S+ community and law enforcement. Out On Patrol recognizes there is still work to be done, and is proud to host events which will provide the community a positive and welcoming space to interact with LGBTQ2S+ law enforcement members.
Our members have first-hand experience with the difficulties LGBTQ2S+ youth face on a daily basis. Out On Patrol is proud to offer educational presentations for elementary and secondary schools, in an effort to combat bullying. These presentations also provide a platform for our members to act as positive role models for youth interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
