Richmond VA > Police > LGBTQ Liaison

Last Updated: 2010-01-20

It is with great pride and a rich enthusiasm that I assume the position of LGBTQ Liaison for the Richmond Police Department. My extensive work in the community and with citizens from all walks of life makes me a natural fit to step into this important role.

For the past 18 years, I have served the Richmond Police Department in capacities, including street-level drug enforcement units, Major Crimes as a forensic detective and sergeant and, most recently, as captain of the Community, Youth and Intervention Services Unit. My career has spanned all aspects of law enforcement, but it has always been built on the premise that we serve and protect everyone – Period.

Community Youth and Intervention Services ties the police department together with the community through programs, such as Community Care, the Police Athletic League, School Resource Officers, Community Assisted Public Safety, the Latino Liaison, Volunteers in Policing, Homeless Outreach Partnership Enforcement, the Faith Leaders program, and the LGBTQ Liaison to name a few.

Prior to assuming command of the Community, Youth and Intervention Services Unit, I was the Sector Lieutenant, “Lt Dan”, in Sector 111 which spans from Church Hill to Fulton in the city’s east end. My time as a sector lieutenant solidified my desire to be responsive to the needs of the community and work with citizens to reach shared goals. As the LGBTQ Liaison, I can further this fundamental community policing model to serve all aspects of the community. In order to serve the public, we must have an open dialogue fostered through relationships built and maintained throughout the communities that put their trust in us.

I look forward to building these relationships and strengthening existing bonds.
