NYPD shows support for gay pride
The NYPD is supporting gay pride with a new rainbow colored patrol vehicle. The SUV was apparently painted for the city’s gay pride parade Sunday in Manhattan and carries a message of support for Orlando in the wake of the country’s largest mass shooting incident earlier this month.
The vehicle also has a heart sticker that reads “NYC Pride 2016” and the words “Pride Equality Peace” – both in rainbow colors. It carries the letters FSD, which stands for FleetServices Division, on its side.
The NYPD has been working on its relationship with members of the city’s gay community since the June 12 attack that killed 49. Bratton was booed at a rally at the Stonewall Inn after the attack.
The NYPD sent top officials to an event held at police headquarters by the Gay Officers Action League – a group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cops.
