Message

Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill


Welcome to NYPD SHIELD, the innovative and highly-successful program that partners our Counterterrorism Bureau with private security managers across the area.

Lavender Alliance
6/6/2019 12:00:00 AM
During the security briefing, the Police Commissioner announced the launch of the Lavender Alliance, a new LGBTQ enhancement of the Shield program. The NYPD Shield program is an umbrella counterterrorism program for a series of current and future police department initiatives that pertain to private sector security and counterterrorism. This is a public-private partnership based on providing best practices, lessons learned, counterterrorism training opportunities, and information sharing. Shield seeks to partner with private sector security managers with the goal of protecting New York City. The Lavender Alliance is an optional group within the program for organizations that provide services to the LGBTQ community. The goal of the Lavender Alliance is to establish a safe and comfortable setting for such organizations by fostering a constructive relationship with the NYPD to engage in the kind of information sharing that is Shield’s primary mission. Organizations that newly register for Shield membership will have the option to identify their establishment as an LGBTQ service provider; existing members can also request their organization join the Lavender Alliance. These members will receive the same benefits as Shield members as well as have the opportunity to participate in conferences and training sessions relevant to the LGBTQ community, often in non-police facilities.
