DOJ Unveils New Transgender Training Video For Police

The Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a training video this week designed to help officers learn appropriate ways to interact with transgender individuals.

The training video includes multiple scenarios meant to educate officers on how to appropriately address and interact with people who identify as transgender.

The DOJ hopes the training will help ease tensions between law enforcement and the transgender community, saying, “Individuals who feel disrespected are less likely to have faith in or cooperate with law enforcement."
