Academy Q provides interactive trainings to law enforcement officers and administrators at all levels. We help them understand the challenges LGBT people face in the criminal justice system, and help educate law enforcement on how to professionally and humanely treat LGBT persons.

Working with Iowa’s Law Enforcement Academy, we open a dialogue between the LGBT community and law enforcement. Through comprehensive training programs, we help law enforcement and corrections officers understand and confront discrimination against LGBT individuals, and create a safer environment for all.

Participants in Transforming Correction Culture will:

  • learn how gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation contribute to our identities
  • learn to identify and combat myths and stereotypes about LGBTQ people
  • gain a deeper understanding of how PREA impacts prisons, jails, and lockups
