Victoria Police actively supports diversity and inclusion in its workforce and connects to the LGBTI community through important dates including IDAHOBIT, Midsumma Carnival, Pride March and ChillOut Festival. The Police Academy recently launched an LGBTI support network and there is also a large GLLO Network (LGBTI Liaison Officers) across Victoria that work at building stronger relationships with the LGBTI community both internal and external to Victoria Police.

Gerard De Leon Senior Constable

I joined Victoria Police in 2005 and my colleagues have been very accepting. When my managers learned that I’m also a LGBTI Liaison Officer, they have been very supportive. They also encourage me to continue to liaise with LGBTI organisations so we can improve VICPOL’s relationship with them.

My colleagues have also asked me for advice in regards to how to address specific issues affecting the LGBTI community particularly Same-Sex Family Violence. Day by day, I feel that police understanding of LGBTI issues is growing. I feel very fortunate to be working in an environment where I am accepted and respected for who I am.
