The Metropolitan Police in Bogota, Colombia, have created a special group of 650 officers charged with protecting the GLBT population.
The officers, who have attended advanced training sessions, are directed to respectfully integrate and collaborate with the city’s GLBT citizens.
Gay groups say Colombian gays continue to experience routine discrimination and that 67 homosexuals have been murdered this year.
