This man is a Superintendent in Cambridge Police Force, sorry Police Service.  I'm sorry, but if police want respect from the public, this is the wrong way to go because I always thought the police were impartial.

It's good to moan.

The Cambridge Super originally wore the helmet designed by local students when he was policing a Pride march in 2019.  I'm wondering how it interferes with his job? He doesn't appear to wear it unless he's at an event.  I quite like it!

Its not how old you are, but how you are old. 💖

It's rather odd that sporting LGBT paraphernalia is the thing for Pride marches while I'm guessing Blackface may not be quite the thing at a BLM event or swastikas when attending marches by right wingers.

Imo police should stick to wearing the uniforms they get issued with.

It's good to moan.

That's my view too. The Police here always do stuff like this for Pride.

Can't say I'm bovvered by it. It's called community policing and should be inclusive.

Rainbow symbol excludes heterosexuality does it not  ? :grin:

It also begs the question I posed of why no swasticas when policing hard right wing marches.... Hardly inclusive if those also legal organisations don't have their symbols worn by the police too. Stupid point? Maybe but why is wearing rainbow bedecked uniforms not stupid too?

It's good to moan.

TBH Klondy I think even some right wingers would find the swastika distasteful

klondike

I'm sure that they would.

I still see no reason for police to wear anything other than their normal uniform though. There are lots of minority groups. If the police started wearing support ribbons and the like for all of them we'd be hard pressed to decide if we were dealing with a policeman or a clown.

It's good to moan.
