Invitation to Participate in a Research Project on LGBTQ2S+ Police Officers
Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, University of Toronto is conducting a research paper to understand the unique experiences of LGBTQ2S+ police officers in the province of Ontario.
This project has the potential to advance people’s perspectives of what it means to be part of the LGBTQ2S+ community, and what it means to be part of the police community. By hearing about LGBTQ2S+ police officer’s unique experiences, assumptions about the tension between police and the LGBTQ2S+ communities could also be further broken down.
Any sworn police officer who identifies under the LGBTQ2S+ umbrella working for any police agency in Ontario is eligible to participate. Participation in this study involves in-depth, open-ended interviews. The interviews will take approximately one hour. You will have the option of a face-to-face (at a location convenient to you) or telephone interview.
If possible, please forward this email to any LGBTQ2S+ police officers who may be interested in participating in this research project.
If you would like more information about this research project or would like to arrange an interview you can either reply to this email address (Juliam.firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me at (1) 226-239-1695.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
