Sgt. Jessica Hawkins, the first DC transgender police officer to head the LGBT liaison unit is awaiting discipline ruling for alleged misconduct with minors.
Thursday night an internal D.C. police investigation “sustained” an allegation that Sgt. Jessica Hawkins, supervisor of the department’s LGBT Liaison Unit (GLLU), offered to show student interns working at the liaison unit “a homemade video of her having sex with four men while she was intoxicated” according to The Washington Blade.
FOX News has this on full blast skewering the report transphobicly
Fox news purportedly acquired this statement from the DC police.
Sgt. Jessica Hawkins was appointed March 2016 amid much fanfare as the first transgender person to head the city police liaison unit. Hawkins, who came out in 2014 and was subsequently tasked with revitalizing a troubled liaison unit which worried some local advocates as to the responsibilities of her appointment vis–à–vis the relative newness of her transition.
The DCist reported in 2015, while members of trans communities “report generally positive interactions with members of GLLU,” the lack of broader outreach to the community is troublesome. Moreover, the trans community is insisting on knowing the MPD’s progress in solving unsolved trans homicides, “some dating to over a decade ago.”
Currently, the Metro DC police web page lists 6 unsolved transgender homicides dating back to 2002, all of whom are dead named.
