WHAT IS TPD SAFE PLACE?
While Tucson is generally a safe and progressive city in the United States, crimes and discrimination related to the City’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) residents and visitors unfortunately still occur. The Tucson Police Department (TPD) is committed to the safety of all LGBTQ residents and visitors.
TPD SAFE PLACE signage is being displayed by local supporting community members, businesses, schools and organizations that work closely with the TPD in an effort to reduce anti-LGBTQ crimes, reduce LGBTQ student bullying, and encourage the reporting of LGBTQ crimes. These are also locations supporting safe and secure places for victims of anti-LGBTQ related crimes and harassment. Calling 911 and waiting for police to respond is essential for holding suspects accountable and reducing hate crimes and harassment in general.
In addition to the 911 police response to these incidents, the TPD has a group of LGBTQ liaison officers who promotes partnership efforts between the TPD and LGBTQ community and can be a resource for answers to questions you may have. E-mail your questions and or requests.
