LGBTQ Police Liaison

The City of Traverse City and the Traverse City Police Department are committed to ensuring all members of the community feel comfortable contacting us for assistance and have access to all the services we provide. The Traverse City Police Department is proud to introduce our LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning) Liaison, Police Chief Jeff O'Brien. The LGBTQ Liaison is a proactive effort to build on and strengthen the relationship between the LGBTQ community and the Traverse City Police Department.

Police Chief Jeff O'Brien will serve as the point of contact for both members of the community and officers who interact with the LGBTQ community. He will advocate creating mutual trust so the community members can gain increasing confidence in the Police through the provision of fair and professional policing services. 


The LGBTQ Liaison strives to enhance Traverse City's livability by implementing community policing projects and supporting a variety of diversity and equity initiatives. For more information, please contact Police Chief Jeff O'Brien (231) 922-5151 by email
