The Police Foundation was engaged by the Gill Foundation to assess, using police records in multiple cities, the historical prevalence of sexual assault committed in places of public accommodation by an otherwise prohibited person accessing that place of accommodation under the guise of being transgender. This research was conducted in states where non-discrimination laws that would allow a transgender individual to access a place of accommodation that aligns with their gender identity are already on the books at the county and city levels.
This research brief presents the findings of the review of sexual assault complaints over multi-year periods in Atlanta, Georgia, Dallas, Texas, Miami-Dade County, Florida, and Tucson, Arizona. The Police Foundation conducted this review independently, using records obtained through each city’s open records processes.
