SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — Citing a commitment to better meeting the diverse needs of the communities it serves, the San Diego Police Department Tuesday released a new set of policies guiding officer interactions with transgender and gender-nonbinary people.
….Key components of San Diego Police Department Procedure 6.34 require that SDPD personnel:
— use visual and verbal cues to become aware of a person’s gender identification, accept it and refer to them by their preferred pronouns;
— properly document a person’s gender identity in police reports and share that information on a need-to-know basis with other department members to ensure continuity of treatment in subsequent interactions;
— give people who identifies as transgender or nonbinary the choice of the gender of the officer who will perform a search on them and ensure that searches of transgender or gender-nonbinary persons are not more invasive than searches of cisgender people;
— follow all department procedures for transporting people who identify as female, including transgender women and the nonbinary, including recording the transport on uniform-worn cameras and notifying a dispatcher of the beginning and ending mileage of the police vehicle used;
— book transgender and nonbinary people into a jail facility that aligns with their preferred identity
… The new policy “lets our community know the San Diego Police Department understands the needs of our community and the appropriate treatment of all individuals based on their preferred gender identity,” LGBTQ Liaison Officer Christine Garcia said.

But, what most people don’t know, underneath the badge is a 32-year-old officer who has spent a majority of her life struggling with her identity. Garcia, a former high school wrestler, came out to the police department as being transgender in July 2015. In November, she began to make her physical transformation from Chris to Christine – reporting for duty as a female.
