POLICE flew a rainbow flag in support of gay, lesbian and bisexual residents over the weekend.
Bromley Police raised a rainbow flag on top of the headquarters in the High Street to mark the International Day Against Homophobia last Saturday.
Meanwhile, officers raised awareness of the Community Safety Unit at an event in Market Square encouraging victims of homophobic and transphobic incidents to report them.
Inspector Andy Johnstone said: "Flying the rainbow flag at the borough's Police HQ is a visible sign of our commitment to eradicating homophobia and anti-gay crime.
"We want to reassure the Gay and Lesbian community that we are here to help them."
Bromley Police are holding surgeries for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community once a month for the next six months at the Central Library.
The surgeries will be taking place on Saturdays from 12 to 3pm on June 28, July 26, August 23, September 27, October 25 and November 22.
A LGBT forum is also held on the second Tuesday of each month at The Star and Garter in Bromley High Street from 6.30pm.
