Yas kweens, NZ coppers design this sick rainbow police car for Pride Parade

News 09/02/2018

A rainbow-themed police car will join the festivities at this month's Pride Parade on February 17.

New Zealand Police have launched the specially-designed rainbow car to mark their commitment to diversity and to acknowledge the important relationship between police and New Zealand's rainbow community.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush says that as an organisation they look to encourage staff to "use who they are", not "lose who they are" when becoming a police officer.

"Therefore it's important to encourage staff to show pride in the communities they represent," he said.

"We are a diverse organisation and I am proud of the work we've done over recent years to build relationships with the LGBTIQ+ community.

"I also encourage members of the LGBTIQ+ community to join us as future police recruits as part of our current recruitment drive."

The rainbow car follows Police's Te Reo pirihimana car, which was designed to support Māori Language Week.
