Failing to Protect and Serve: Police Department Policies Towards Transgender People
May 30, 2019
58% of transgender people who interacted with law enforcement in the last year reported experiences of harassment, abuse, or other mistreatment. Prepared by the National Center of Transgender Equality, Failing to Protect and Serve: Police Department Policies Towards Transgender People uses data from 25 of the largest police departments in the country and uses 17 areas of criteria–attitude toward bathroom access, explicit protections for gender identity and/or expression, et. al–to evaluate the relationship between law enforcement and transgender people.
