Police Target Homophobic Violence And Discrimination

 
 
LETHBRIDGE: Members of the Lethbridge Police Service received training Wednesday designed to prevent homophobic and transphobic violence and increase reporting of hate motivated crimes.

The program, called "Report Homophobic Violence, Period" was developed by the Toronto Police Service in 2007 after a 13-year-old boy committed suicide after being the target of homophobic bullying.

Here in Lethbridge, there has only been one incident against gender orientation on the police books. However, Sergeant Dan Walton says that doesn't mean that hate biased incidents are not happening in our city, and this training will help educate the public and the police service on dealing with these situations.

This is the first time the program has been presented in Alberta.
