Training Grant Awarded

For Immediate Release

December 3, 2015 (Santa Rosa, CA)  Out To Protect announces the award of a training grant to the New England Gay Officers Action League (GOAL).

The New England GOAL provides training for law enforcement agencies and training academies on how to better understand and service the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.  For the last 25 years, New England GOAD has been supporting members of the law enforcement profession who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.  They have provided an important source of support and networking for LGBT law enforcement professionals who have suffered harassment and discrimination in the workplace.  The training that New England GOAL provides helps prevent this kind of harassment and provides law enforcement with information that will help the profession better support the LGBT members within the rank and file as well as to better serve LGBT citizens.
The training grant provided by Out To Protect will fund six 2-hour training programs in the come year that members of New England GOAL will provide to local law enforcement agencies and training academies.

The board of directors of Out To Protect commends New England GOAL for this community policing effort and wishes to congratulate this amazing organization for 25 years of dedicated service.
