Date Responded 14 September 2021

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

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.

In Response:

  1. 2
  2. We intend to livery a further three vehicles shortly.
  3. This is dependent on type and size of vehicle.  The current two vehicles, which have full livery, cost between £1,000 -£1500.
