The Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit (GLLU) is a team of dedicated officers that focuses on the public safety needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and their allied communities. They conduct public education campaigns on issues related to hate crimes and public safety. Their primary focus is to gain the trust of the community and seek out information that leads to the closure of hate crime and violent crime within the GLBT community. They conduct patrol functions and respond to all citizen complaints.
