Hamilton Police failed to prevent and failed to effectively respond to a violent attack upon the Hamilton Pride Festival in 2019, one of the many failings found in an independent report was that HPS had no coordination with the diverse communities organizing Pride.

A year after the report, HPS announced this week that Sergeant Rebecca Moran will now be the full-time Two- Spirit and LGBTQIA+ Liaison Officer. Sgt. Moran had been the liaison officer in addition to regular duties.
