(BLOOMINGTON) - The Bloomington Police Department announces the creation of the LGBTQ Liaison Program and the appointment of two veteran sergeants to serve as the department liaisons.

The City of Bloomington has the 5th largest per capita population of same-sex households in the United States and is home to Indiana University which is ranked as one of the top gay friendly college campuses.

The LGBT Liaison Program is designed to help foster positive relations and build communication between the LGBTQ community and the police department. The liaisons will work with the LGBTQ community in order to provide resources and address issues or concerns as related to hate crimes or public safety issues.

Chief Diekhoff has appointed Detective Sergeant Dana Cole and Sergeant David Alley to serve as the LGBT liaisons. Detective Sergeant Cole is a 12 year veteran of the Bloomington Police Department and currently serves as the sergeant in charge of the Special Investigations Unit. Sergeant David Alley is a 7 year veteran of the Bloomington Police Department and is currently assigned to second shift patrol as a shift supervisor.

The establishment of the LGBT Police Liaison Program continues the department's commitment to representing and serving the diverse Bloomington community.
