Police have a say in their new uniform

Police officers are being asked for their thoughts on a new uniform which is due to hit the streets in 2014.

The current uniform, which will remain in use for ceremonial purposes and office wear, has been criticised for being too difficult to run and climb in, and for lacking authority.
Among the questions officers are being asked is what sort of headgear they would like and if they want to wear an ordinary or a polo shirt.
The uniform, designed in-house according to Nos television, will be the same for both male and female officers.
In January, the Telegraaf reported Dutch police officers would like to ditch their caps for a more military-looking beret, replace their neat slacks with cargo trousers and wear tough boots rather than shoes.
