RCMP Safe Place Program
Displaying the RCMP SAFE PLACE symbol at your premise carries some important responsibilities that will greatly assist in protecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) victims of crime.
These LGBTQ victims will recognize the RCMP SAFE PLACE symbol of safety that indicates your business, organization, school or premise is willing to assist and to protect these victims. To make this concept effective the RCMP would like you to instruct your staff, employees, supervisors, managers, teachers, volunteers, counselors and/or students, etc. of the following protocol:
- Please apply the RCMP SAFE PLACE decal outside the front entrance of your establishment, building, room, etc. (approx. 3-5 feet high, if possible). If there is no glass at your front entrance, the RCMP SAFE PLACE poster can be placed conspicuously inside your premise.
- Please allow these victims to enter and remain at your premise until the police arrive
- Please either call, or assist these victims in calling 911.
- Contact your RCMP/LGBTQ Detachment Liaison Officer
