See how the NYPD is getting ready for Pride by revamping a squad car
The police livery has been recreated in a rainbow of colours.
A police squad car has been given a multicolour makeover ahead of Pride.
New York Police Department shared a video on Twitter of the vehicle being stripped of its everyday blue livery – and replaced by a rainbow-hued NYPD banner and stripes to link in with the respected Pride flag.
We decided to give ourselves a little makeover for @NYCPride 2018. Look out for our new ride during the #NYCPride2018 March this Sunday and don’t forget to say “Hi” to all our officers who are marching. pic.twitter.com/al6XpVwunY— NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) June 20, 2018
A banner on the car reads “The NYPD salutes the LGBTQ community” another states “pride, equality, peace”.
In a post on social media, NYPD wrote: “We decided to give ourselves a little makeover for NYCPride 2018.
“Look out for our new ride during the #NYCPride2018 March and don’t forget to say ‘hi’ to all our officers who are marching.”
More than 110 floats paraded in the 2017 event with more than 450 organisations represented.
