SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Police Department has become the nation's first law enforcement agency to assure lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual young people that yes, it does get better.
More than a dozen LGBT officers and dispatchers appeared in the 8 1/2-minute video released Friday on YouTube and the department's website. It's part of a nationwide effort by the nonprofit Trevor Project to deal with the rising number of teen suicides in the gay community.
