Atlanta police to conduct safety seminar for LGBT residents

The Atlanta Police Department will sponsor a safety seminary on Friday, Aug. 24, that is open to everyone but will focus on issues facing the LGBT communities in particular. The seminar will be from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Saint Mark United Methodist Church.

“It is important to update and educate the LGBT community on current crime trends affecting it,” said Deputy Chief Propes in a prepared statement. ”Providing proactive crime prevention information will hopefully offer the tools to prevent victimization.”
