“Each officer will be given two pairs of uniform and starting tomorrow, they will be in the new uniforms,”Kasingye said
“The white girders will help prevent water from getting into the shoes of the officers.”
The chevrons will also be in white.
AIGP Asan Kasingye added on changing the uniform is a form of reducing the many kinds of uniform police personnel put on.
“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.”
