Greg Miraglia is the dean of criminal justice training at Napa Valley College. Since 1986, he has been teaching a variety of law enforcement courses including cultural diversity, human relations, work place harassment and discrimination prevention, community policing, and one of the only state certified hate crimes investigations courses in the State of California. In 2011, he authored curriculum for an accredited LGBT Studies Program now offered by Napa Valley College. This was the second program of its type offered by a California college.

In July of 2013, Mr. Miraglia was awarded the "Dr. John W. Rice Diversity Award" by the Chancellor of the California Community College system for his work developing hate crime prevention and diversity education programs. He is a nationally recognized speaker and expert on LGBT issues in the law enforcement profession.

He serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Matthew Shepard Foundation and is the National Program Coordinator for the Stop the Hate! Program. He speaks about hate crime prevention throughout the country. He is also a radio program host and producer on Outbeat Radio, a weekly LGBT program on KRCB Radio in northern California.

Mr. Miraglia has over 35 years of experience in law enforcement with three different police departments working most recently as deputy chief of the Napa Valley Railroad Police Department.
After coming out himself in 2004, Mr. Miraglia decided to work with others in law enforcement still struggling with the pervasive homophobia that still exists in many areas of the law enforcement, the fire service, and EMS profession.

Mr. Miraglia has a Masters Degree in Education, a Bachalor's Degree in Business, and is a graduate of the California P.O.S.T. Master Instructor Development Program.
