Being. Multicultural. Aware. | LLOs – LGBTQI+ Liaison Officers

Tonight we hear from LGBTIQ+ Liaison Officer, Jeremy Oliver, who passionately describes what being one of the 500 LLOs of the Victoria Police means, giving insight into the many different, and culturally, safe ways to engage with an LLO, how his job has changed, the ongoing expansion and engagement with all parts of the community, practical sensibility and consideration to all the triggers, and concerns, that anything police may cause, too recent changes in how Police Officers and LLO’s participate in Melbourne’s Midsumma Pride March, the planned expansion of LLO services into regional areas, the aspects of his job that give the greatest sense of achievement and sense of having contributed justly to community wellbeing, and what he sees on the horizon for LGBTIQ+ Liaison Officers across Australia.

Hosted by Tony K. Fretton, founder of Pacifique X.
