Contact your local Police Gay and Lesbian Liaison Officer, call 13 14 44 and ask for the GLLO Officer.
The AFP has a strong commitment to increasing the representation of people from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex community (LGBTI). The AFP's policies and guidelines actively seek inclusion from LGBTI employees by articulating organisational expectations of respect for all people.
The AFP was a leading force in the creation of a national Gay and Lesbian Liaison Officer (GLLO) network to help support individuals and managers within the organisation as well as members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community it polices – with a particular focus on the LGBTI community of the ACT where the AFP performs a community policing role.
Additionally the AFP also mentors other police forces in the engagement and creation of their GLLO networks.
Members of the AFP GLLO network have undertaken specific training programs to support their GLLO role. The program includes information sessions and modules which allow members of LGBTI community to participate and discuss contemporary issues, and develop strategies to support policing efforts for a safer community.
The AFP has been recognised as a leader in this field by the award of the Best Public Sector Organisation in the 2011 Pride in Diversity, Australian Workplace Equality Index Awards and in the Top Ten of all organisations since 2012 for our support of the LGBTI workforce.
The AFP's commitment to provide additional support for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community was enhanced following recommendations from the Australian Law Reform Commission (1995) and the Australia and New Zealand Equal Employment Opportunity in Policing Conference (1996).
