New-style uniform shirts for police in Derbyshire
CHANGES are being made to the uniform worn by police officers in Derbyshire.
The force said that, following consultation with staff, more practical shirts would be introduced across the county to suit policing needs. Officers will start wearing the new shirts on Monday.
They will be worn by all uniformed operational police officers and uniformed police staff within Derbyshire Constabulary.
Officers will wear black shirts and police staff, including community support officers, will wear blue.

A small number of police officers will still wear white shirts and black ties because of the role they perform.
The force said that as well as the improved practicality of the new shirts, the change brings Derbyshire Constabulary in line with other forces, including those in the East Midlands. This will provide the opportunity to buy uniforms jointly with other constabularies, saving about £3,000 a year.
