Cain is a five-year veteran who was born and raised in Kearny. She currently resides in Morris County with her wife, Mary, and their dog, Gryffin.

Her appointment as the LGBTQ+ Liaison is part of a statewide initiative to provide support to both law enforcement and the community who may be struggling with LGBTQ+ matters, the department said in a statement.

The program is designed to build a stronger relationship and promote trust through training and community outreach between the LGBTQ+ community and police officers.

The liaison also serves as an internal resource for fellow officers to have open and honest discussions regarding calls for service involving LGBTQ+ persons, updates on state and federal protection policies, and available local resources.

Cain is available to speak with anyone in need of non-emergent police services, or just a listening ear, and can be reached at
