We are delighted to be attending today’s launch of the Merseyside Police ‘Police with Pride’ car on behalf of Assistant Chief Constable Julie Cooke.
Our Chief Executive, Rose Simkins, is attending the launch on behalf of Stop Hate UK and welcomes the addition of the ‘Police with Pride’ car as great tool in Merseyside Police’s Hate Crime initiative.
The car is just one of the many ways in which Merseyside Police intend to show their visible support for victims of hate crime right across Merseyside, in the hope that this it will encourage more victims of hate crime to come forward and report incidents to the Police and also further increase engagement with the public.
The car will be an operational police vehicle utilised by Merseyside Response Officers and will be deployed across the Merseyside region. Whilst the vehicle retains an operational police appearance, it’s livery includes a variant of the LGB&T rainbow flag colours on the side of the car, alongside the Crimestoppers logo and the Stop Hate UK website address.
The car looks resplendent as you can see below:
Stop Hate UK are very proud to be involved in this project and we very proud to be present at today’s official launch at Merseyside Police’s headquarters.
