Chicago, IL - The Chicago Police Department is getting in the spirit of Sunday's 49th annual Chicago Pride Parade.

CPD shared photos of a police cruiser with a rainbow decal on its hood via the department's official Twitter on Friday.

"#Pride Parade is this weekend and the @Chicago_Police Dept put together a little squad car makeover for the 49th annual #ChicagoPride Parade," the cops tweeted. "Keep an eye out for our #Pride2018 @Chicago_Police squad car & be sure to say hello to our Officers marching on Sunday."

Chicago Police tweeted at the New York Police Department after they shared an image of a NYPD cruiser decked out with similar rainbow-theme.

Chicago's Lesbian Gay Police Association will be among the 150 colorful entries in this year's Chicago Pride Parade. 

The parade steps-off Sunday, June 24 at noon from Montrose and Broadway and will then travel the 21-block parade route before it ends near Diversey and Sheridan in Lincoln Park.
