Police LGBTQ Liaison Committee
The Washington Square West Civic Association wants you to know we have your back. After the tragedy that has befallen the LGBTQ+ community this past weekend, we want to reach out and say that we support you, we are thinking of you, and we are here for you. In the LGBTQ community and the Wash West Community, we take care of each other! With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, this coming Wednesday will be a busy day for the nightclubs, restaurants, and bars in the Gayborhood and we want to inform the community of the additional steps being taken to ensure the public’s safety.
The Philadelphia Police Department will be stepping up patrols around the clubs, bars, and restaurants in the Gayborhood on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022. Furthermore, additional resources will be assigned to the police detail devoted to patrolling the Gayborhood. Safety is our number one priority in our community as well as everyone who lives, works and plays in our vibrant neighborhood.
