  • Homosexuals in law enforcement......

    I am goind to be writting a paper for school regarding policies on homosexuals in law enforcement. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where I could find information about different policies. Or if there are any written policies. The bulk of the paper will be about Gays in the Military, but there will be some information about other lines of work as well. I'm not able to use the internet as a source, nor would I trust the information I would find! I want to know if there is information available to employees, or the general public. If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    Uh, isn't the internet what brought you to this site? Be interesting to see responses you get on this topic.

    To get you started, no written rule in our Department concerning it...

      I'm not Gay... at least my wife says so!

      I highly doubt there are any Official Sources about how many Gays are in LE.
      What is it about, "Thou shalt not.....", do some people not understand?
      Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

        OMG there are homosexuals in LE....


        Anywho with that said.... You won't find any policies about homosexuals because as others said it is discrimination, but they are always unwritten rules....

        Also, some agencies may offer benefits that are normally offered to married folks...So that is something to look into...

          There cannot be any policies against it. The would be a civil rights violation. We had a gay officer here that is currently retired. He was great. I trusted him with my life more than some other officers that were here.

          You may want to look into GOAL (Gay Officers Action League). Also, there used to be gay police recruiting for the NYPD, but I do not know if it still exists.

              Bodie, I can almost guarantee you that if you are in a larger department, there is at least 1 or more gay officers on your job. He is in the closet. He may be married or have a girlfriend. He probably laughs the hardest at the gay jokes that are made. Small departments have them too.

              I've met many gay officers that are in the closet in large and small departments through the retired guy that was on my job.

                        Why would you write a paper on this subject. Are you studying to be some EOE whistleblower?

                        Or are you just asking because this is a personal issue you have about getting a job in LE and are making up a lie because you fear we will jump on you?

                          Sorry Bodie I thought you were serious for a second. I did not know Ohio was the gay Mecca.

                          Also SO535, it's an important subject if you are a gay officer in law enforcement or know someone that is a gay officer in law enforcement or even if you have gay officers on your department and others are having trouble dealing with it.

                            I don't know about Bodie's neck of the woods, but I always thought Lakewood was ohio's gay mecca.

                              I work side by side with gay officers every day. Does not bother me and they fit in well in this department. I think it helps that almost all of them are female. But like I said I hold nothing against them just as long as they got my back when SHTF.
