Police Department Criticized For Permanent Gay Pride Cars With Jobs Being Lost
A brightly painted gay pride patrol car, which debuts this weekend with the Sussex Police, is set to stay.
Inspector Mark Evans posted an online photo of one of the cars, explaining it was decorated ready for events in Eastbourne and Hastings.
The car designs will remain after the events.
The department has taken some heat for spending funds on the cars since they are in line to lose 1000 jobs and 500 officers due to budget cuts.
Inspector Evans told the audience on social media not to worry about the funds since the designs were purchased from the diversity budget’.
