Special Report: Homophobia In Law Enforcement

In May of 2010, we aired a story about homophobia in law enforcement. Almost 5 years have gone by and while we would like to think things have improved, a recent investigation by the San Francisco Police Department involving 10 of its own, suggests maybe not.  In this Outbeat Extra we revisited some of the interviews we did 5 years ago and hear from some new officers working in local agencies today. We also shared with you the latest research from UCLA’s Williams Institute on homophobia in law enforcement agencies around the country.
