New Uniformproposal Dutch Police

Unread postby Martin Mennega » Sun Mar 25, 2012 3:51 am

Hi Everybody,

Here in the Netherlands they are planning to give the police new uniforms for streetwork. The current style white shirt, blue tie and creased pants are considered no longer suitable for streetwork ( I agree) One of the proposals looks very much like the Spanish Policia Local.

These photos are by no means official and it has yet to be seen how much will be left over in the end.

In the last weeks of December the Dutch police-officer were presented with a questionery in which they could choose from 2 different uniform designs and their different appearances (shirt or polo, baseball cap or field cap etc) for a general idea on the style we could chose from, see:

http://www.hulpverleningsforum.nl/index.php?topic=69654.120

Scroll till reactie 134

The results of the questionary should be known on the 8th of March.

The Netherlands has almost 50.000 police-officers and the questionary had a response of 33.000!.

The winner is........ (drum role )

The first uniform. Dark blue, yellow stripes with the baseball cap.

Everything I didn't want. The lay out is like the french Gendarmerie: Poloshirt, Softshell and all weather jacket.

And on that bombshell I leave you....... smilies-02

Poloshirt? Baseball cap? Horrible choices to say the least. Whenever I see a cop in a poloshirt it screams unprofessional. I can see it being acceptable for certain special units like marine/water officers in warm weather or for K9 officers but for general patrol officers it's a turnoff.

eeeeeek smilies-30 I feel bad for you!

Well compared to what we have now ( the uniform in which I work daily ) the concept of polo shirt with worker trousers is very welcome. A engine operator from the navy doesn't work in his dress A uniform, does he. We ware a white thin shirt and office style trousers. Bear in mind that the police here has more different tasks.

I hope the real uniforms are better than the drawings though. and as I said I don't like the bus drivers stripes.

See:
http://www.politie.nl/nieuws/2013/maart/7/00-politie-kiest-nieuw-uniform.html

The general opinion here under my colleagues and the population is that the polo doesn't reduce the authority of the officer.

Here is a link to the Dutch Police website which contains the presentations of the new Dutch Police uniforms. The change-over has just started and will continue until the end of december.
