Police to observe how Sussex handles Pride
Two Bermuda police officers will attend one of the world’s biggest Pride parades this weekend as the island gears up for its first gay rights celebration next month.
Superintendent Sean Field-Lament and Sergeant Brian Macnab will work with Sussex Police at the Brighton Pride event in England and meet organisers and parade-goers, before Bermuda’s Pride Parade in August.
Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley said: “Superintendent Field-Lament is the gold commander for Bermuda’s Pride Parade, assisted by Sergeant Macnab as his tactical adviser.
“This is the first such parade in Bermuda and the indication is that there will be an extremely large public turnout in celebration, including overseas attendees, with potentially some small numbers who may also attend to express their objections.”
Mr Corbishley said he wanted his officers to see “best practices” in action in advance of the parade.
