Members of the D.C. Police Department’s Special Liaison Branch, which includes the LGBT Liaison Unit, posed for a photo this week at the LGBT community services center Casa Ruby while on their rounds delivering turkeys to local community groups for the Thanksgiving holiday. Lt. Brett Parson, who oversees the department’s liaison units, said the turkeys were donated by the group Islamic Relief USA and the effort was coordinated by the Sixth Police District and the office of D.C. Council member Vincent Gray (D-Ward 7).
