Perlease!
Hurts absolutely no-one.
This is definitely not the answer, it will only make the haters hate even more !

Rumour has it, the Taliban might follow suit.
^Well, they did say they'd ... changed.
Shirley- how will it? It might make some keyboard warriors explode with rage, but in the real world no-one is going to see a rainbow on a police car and think, "I need to go shout abuse at some gay people now."

Pride are a political organisation, mozz. The police should be neutral.
Plus, it costs money.
Yes, the police should be neutral. Just do the job!

//Currently as many as 80 per cent of LGBT+ people don’t report hate crimes to the authorities, according to Stonewall, but police believe their colourful cars will change that.//

Of course it will.

Meanwhile I look forward to seeing some police vehicles emblazoned with people in striped jerseys carrying sacks with "Swag" written on them. This might give people more confidence to report the crimes that have an impact on them, too. But of course being a victim of burglary is not quite so fashionable and tackling it will not give senior police offices the credibility they so richly deserve.
Problem is, with many forces undermanned, they can’t always cope with the current rate of crime reports, so why do they want to encourage more people to report crimes. Where’s the manpower coming from?
//...but in the real world no-one is going to see a rainbow on a police car and think,...//

In the real world where I live you are lucky to see a police car at all unless ten or twelve of them are gathered for an exercise to stop drivers with untaxed cars.
"...according to Stonewall". No further comment needed.
Because mozz they will probably think that the LBGT community are more important than anybody else, being singled out this way and therefore it will probably cause more problems, and also as others say, the police should be neutral not seen to defend one group over others!
Spice- //AuthorPride are a political organisation, mozz. The police should be neutral.//

No it isn't. Pride isn't even an organisation to my (albeit limited) knowledge. It's just the promotion of the LGBT+ people as a whole. Something for them to rally behind and feel like they don't need to hide.

//Plus, it costs money.//

Yes, those rainbow stickers don't come cheap.

This crack squad will be tackling wrong opinions.

£375 per car.
the police showing support for the queer community will not influence people to commit hate crimes if anything it will show that legally it is not ok to commit these crimes hopefully people will realise that because i mean when will people just be able to live their lifes without fear of judgement from others i am so lucky to be surrounded by accepting people who would never look down on someone for having a different sexuality preference to them
Shirley - //Because mozz they will probably think that the LBGT community are more important than anybody else//

Anyone who really thinks that way is likely to be an accident waiting to happen anyway. Sounds like the sort of knuckle dragger that would happily shout that abuse without provocation. Perhaps the rainbow flag will encourage their victims to report the abuse.
spicerack that is cheap to be honest i did once look to see if i could get my car wrapped a different colour and it was very expensive thousands of pounds it would have been for me so for them to be able to get rainbow colour all the colours for less than £400 bargain that is maybe they get discount for multiple vehicles
