Madison police unveil pride flag decal in honor of Pride Month

A Pride Flag On A Madison Police Vehicle

MADISON, Wis. — The Madison Police Department shared a photo Wednesday of a squad car with a pride flag decal to celebrate Pride Month.

Police said the wrap on the vehicle was provided by the Madison Community Policing Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2016 by retired police officers.

Pride Month happens every June to honor and celebrate the lives and work of LGBTQ+ people. June was chosen to commemorate the 1968 Stonewall Riots that are widely seen as a seminal moment in the fight for gay rights.
