LGBTQ Liaison Program

In 2018 the Annapolis Police Department established a departmental LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) liaison. The purpose of establishing the liaison is to facilitate law enforcement engagement with the LGBTQ community and reporting of potential hate crimes. Sergeant Amy Miguez is serves as the department’s LGBTQ liaison.

The liaison collaborates with various police divisions, including Investigations and Recruiting, to educate, assist and interact with officers, residents, businesses and organizations about LGBTQ issues. The position is based in the department’s Community Services Unit. In addition, the liaison focuses on the public safety needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and their allied communities. The goal in establishing the position is to gain the trust of the community and seek out information that leads to the closure of hate crime and violent crime within the LGBTQ community.

Please contact Sergeant Amy Miguez at 410-268-9000 ext. 7261 or to discuss non-emergency issues or request attendance at a meeting.
