LGBT+/Pride themed police vehicles

Matthew Thompson made this Freedom of Information request to Cleveland Police as part of a batch sent to 45 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to make the following request under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The NPCC recently put out a publicity drive regarding rainbow flag police vehicles, described as "hate crime cars".

Could you please tell me:

1) How many cars painted in rainbow/LGBT+ themed colours your force currently has

2) How many you intend to have in total

3) The cost of decorating such a car, or the whole budget for multiple cars if this is not individually priced.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Thompson
