This article argues administration of police organizations may create barriers and facilitators for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (LGBTIQ) and/or questioning those seeking police support. With research to date focused on frontline LGBTIQ–police experiences, we are yet to examine the influence of administration. This article begins this conversation using data from research projects documenting policing experiences of LGBTIQ people in Australia to show how we may need to queer police administrative systems to better support LGBTIQ people. The data discussed demonstrates the need for further research exploring how administration of police organizations can complicate supportive LGBTIQ–police relationships.
