A former Washington, DC police officer who led the DC Police’s LGBT Liaison Unit was arrested in Florida over the weekend for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a minor.
Brett Parson, 53, was arrested Saturday in Boca Raton on a warrant from the Coconut Creek Police Department, an officer told Fox News.
Parson is charged with two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, the officer said.
Online court records show Parson being held at the Palm Beach County Main Detention Center without bond. It was not immediately clear whether he had retained the services of a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

Parson worked for nearly three decades as an officer for the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department. For many years he led the department’s LGBT liaison unit.
He retired as a full-time MPD officer in February 2020. That year, he told the Washington Blade, “I will remain with the MPD as a part-time reserve officer serving at will. of the Reserve Corp in the role that I can best help the agency that I love.”
