The Dallas Police Department, Dallas Hope Charities, and Collective Hope Coalition are working together to spread awareness and education in the community by encouraging victims to report ALL crimes, especially hate crimes, in hopes of reducing the risk of suicide by within our LGBTQ+ community. The Safe Place program will help bring the LGBTQ+ community, the Dallas Police Department, local businesses, social organizations, and education centers together to create a safe place and city for all.
The Safe Place Program is for ALL hate crimes against race, color, religion, gender, ancestry, sexual orientation, national origin, gender expression or identity, mental, physical, or sensory disabilities, homelessness, marital status, political ideology, age, or parental status.
We also know that sometimes there is a need for individuals to have a place of reprieve when thoughts of self-harm, or suicidal ideation are happening while help is on the way.
The program helps to increase the confidence for victims to report crimes and to know they will be treated with respect, dignity, and care from the Safe Place locations and first responders.
