Sgt. Kevin Bailey, the Baltimore Police Department’s first full-time LGBT liaison, addressed a meeting of Prime Timers of Baltimore on Aug. 14 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Baltimore. About 25 people attended the meeting in which Bailey discussed his role as LGBT liaison. In addition, Carlton Smith, who is a representative of the Police Commissioner’s LGBT Advisory Board, explained the function of that group.
Bailey said he was not authorized to comment on the recent Department of Justice report on the BPD but noted there have been increased educational programs and training on how the police should properly interact with LGBT individuals with a focus on the transgender community.
Bailey, who performs post-investigation follow-ups, said that for any police complaints, call 410-396-2300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
