Baltimore County PD Launches Safe Space Initiative For LGBTQIA+ Community
(Baltimore Co., MD) -- The Baltimore County Police Department is launching a new "safe space" initiative for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Businesses across Baltimore County are joining #BCoPD in its SAFE SPACE Initiative rollout. A distinguishable “Safe Space” decal assures any victim of an LGBTQIA+ biased hate crime the location is a safe space to seek help as police are contacted.

It provides Safe Space decals to community members, businesses, schools and other organizations to display.
The sign lets members of the LGBTQIA+ community know it's a safe place to call police if they've become a victim of a hate crime.
The decals are free of charge.
#BCoPD proud to announce Det. J. Waites as their 1st LGBTQIA+ Liaison. Another big announcement as #BCoPD rolls out the Department’s Safe Space program #today. Thank you to the businesses that already have decals in their window or on their door. #DEI pic.twitter.com/1TCz51zCQ7— Baltimore County Police Department (@BaltCoPolice) November 28, 2022
