The City of Miami Beach and the Miami Beach Police Department are committed to the safety and equal treatment of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) residents and visitors.  The Safe Place Initiative was founded by the Seattle Police Department and adopted by the Orlando Police Department. We have worked closely with both departments to implement the Safe Place program in the City of Miami Beach.

    Safe PlaceWhat is a Safe Place? 

    Safe Place is a program in which the local community comes together to provide a haven for members of the LGBTQ community who may have been subjected to a hate crime or harassment.  A Safe Place location can be identified by the official decal
    proudly displayed by local supporting shops, restaurants, businesses, schools and organizations that work with Miami Beach PD to reduce hate crimes against the LGBTQ community.  These locations, which place the Safe Place sticker at their entrance, support a safe and secure place for any victims of an anti-LGBTQ related crime or harassment to stay and wait inside of their business as they call for police to arrive.
