Zone 4 Vehicles Get Stronger Than Hate Decals

 

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police today will place “Stronger than Hate” decals on police vehicles in Zone 4.

The decals are in response to the Oct. 27 tragedy in Squirrel Hill in which members of the Tree of Life, New Light and Dor Hadash congregations were attacked while peacefully worshipping.

"This is an ongoing effort to show our commitment to the communities we serve,” said Commander Eric Holmes. “Our ranks include members of the Bureau who are of the Jewish faith and this is also a way to support them.

“Pittsburgh has a storied history that includes the Steel industry, the Steelers, and since 1857 the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police,” Holmes continued. “Hate is NOT part of our DNA. Placing these decals on our vehicles in Zone 4 is a small way to reflect on our shared history and to show that we stand together as one."

Four Pittsburgh Police officers were shot and injured while responding to the synagogue shooting and two others were injured. The Bureau has been overwhelmed with residents’ support for the officers who responded, and for Zone 4.

“We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support from across America, the City of Pittsburgh, and in particular, the residents of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood,” Zone 4 Commander Dan Herrmann said. “The men and women from the Zone 4 police station, who serve the Squirrel Hill community, are proud to display the decals on our police vehicles.”

The decals, which were designed in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Steelers, will remain on cars through January.
