Here for Safety & Inclusion
We’re here to help LGBTQ people who have experienced homophobic and transphobic violence by providing a range of support services.
Reporting to Police
If it’s an emergency always call 911. If it’s not urgent, call the Police Assistance Line at: 716-853-2222.
The Buffalo Police Department (BPD) has had on-going LGBTQ Cultural Competency training provided by The Pride Center. Additionally, BPD has received training on responding to intimate partner violence reports by LGBTQ people.
If you’re not happy with the service you have received from the police, the Buffalo Police Department has an internal complaints process. The Citizens Complaint form can be accessed here.
We can help you report an incident to police. For more information, please contact us at 716-852-7743
We're here to help make the places where our communities live, work, study, and play more inclusive of LGBTQ people.
Through our support services, training programs and strategic partnerships, we work with a range of organizations and agencies to help ensure that LGBTQ people feel included and supported.
