The Uganda Police Force today (Monday) unveiled a fresh attire for the traffic Police. The unleashing was presided over by the chairman uniform committee of the police force AIGP Asan Kasingye.
The introduction of the new attire means that the all-white traffic police uniform will be replaced by a khaki one with an ashe- white beret, belt and girder whereas and special caps for the female officers.
“Each officer will be given two pairs of uniform and starting tomorrow, they will be donning the new uniforms,”Kasingye noted.
“The white girders will help prevent water from getting into the shoes of the officers.”
The chevrons will also be in white.
“The white uniform came in 2007 and it came because of CHOGM. After that, we found that police has many uniforms and we had to reduce them.”
With the many differing uniforms the security enforcers have, AIGP Kasingye stated that the move was aimed at making all police officers’ uniform khaki.
