Unification of uniformity in the local police in the Basque Country
The 78 local Basque police department agrees on a new and unique blue phosphorescent uniform design.
A citizen who moves between Arrigorriaga and Santurce, a little over twenty miles and seven municipalities, may see up to ten different uniforms, including municipal police, Ertzaintza, and you may also encounter some national police and even the Civil Guard, which maintains public safety.
In Arrasate go purple, one of the colors of the flag of the People in Bilbao, a modern black, in Astigarraga, green, and some people even yellow. Others wear the typical checkerboard band (blue and white checkered), though most opt for the classic blue stripe. Not to mention the headdress, from peaked cap San Sebastian to txapela and American style viewfinder. They come in red, black, green and blue. They come in red, black, green and blue.
Juanjo Olabarria, director of Local Police Coordination, Department of the Interior ,two years ago, when I created the position, stating a fact: each of the 78 local Basque police dispersed the dress and is organized differently.
"Promote the standardization of the various bodies" was one of the functions that Interior created the Directorate for Coordination and one of its five desks, probably the most advanced. As this newspaper has learned from internal sources, all representatives agree on the need for 3,000 municipal officers Basques look the same uniform so that citizens can identify them 'a glance'. They have even reached a consensus on the colors you should have: the traditional blue police as the basis of the suit and the newest, but the trend is more widespread and recommended by European legislation, fluorescent yellow for the front and upper back.
They also agree to place the universal word 'Polizia' in a visible part of the diver and cars, compared to that of Udaltzaingoa that had been imposed so far. The increasing presence of immigrants and tourists warrants, as some do not understood the word in Euskera.

The shield of the municipal police will be to Eguzki Basque-lore, the thistle that baserritarras hung, and some still maintain, at the door of the villages to ward off evil spirits. This symbol unify different police forces, although each may also include their own distinctive signs such as reference to the municipality, according to the sources.
