LGBTQ Liaison 

The Huntington Police Department believes in maintaining an inclusive community that ensures safety for all. As a result, the Police Department has an LGBTQ Police Liaison who serves as a bridge between the LGBTQ community and law enforcement. The liaison is an advocate for fair and respectful enforcement of the law as well as an officer that the community can rely upon to appropriately respond to sensitive issues.

The Police Department’s current LGBTQ Liaison is Sergeant Ted Backus. He can be reached at 304-696-5510 or
