About this event
Establishing the first ever LGBTQ2S+ Liaison Officer position both within the Vancouver Police Department and the province of British Columbia, Dale Quiring has been integral to the improvement of policies, procedures and most importantly relationship building with LGBTQ2S+ community.
Over the course of his 20-year policing career thus far, he has spent time working in the Public Order Unit and the Source Handling Unit, while his time in patrol was primarily in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Most recently, as the Hate Crimes Detective in the Diversity & Indigenous Relations Section, Constable Quiring received the BC Community Safety and Crime Prevention Award in 2016, as well as a Chief’s Constable Commendation in 2017 for his work with the LGBTQ2S+ community.
