Tucson Police Creating Program for Businesses to Be Safe Places for LGBT

Tucson Police Department Safe Place Program

Tucson Police Department Safe Place program is looking for businesses to sign up and agree to be a “safe place” by letting people stay inside their business until police arrive. TPD is working with the group, Tucson Pride on the program. Participating businesses will receive a rainbow police badge decal to place on their windows and special training. Look for the stickers to know which businesses support the community and are a safe place.

The initial effort will focus on enrolling businesses in Downtown Tucson, which has a high concentration of people, shops, and restaurants.

Stay safe out there!
