Types of Uniform

Recommended Posts



Uniform in Herts with regards to stab vest, tac vests ect what is deal as I've seen a few wearing high vis yellow, but also a lot wearing black stab vest with black tac vest over the top? Is it all high vis stab vest now or is that only for high vis patrols, NTE sort of stuff.

For general policing including intervention and safer neighbourhood teams, the hi vis tac vest on a black stab vest is now the uniform policy. Some stand out if they are using old black tac vests which were requested to have been returned back to uniform stores. And as senior rank requested it.... It is naughty to keep it. But they're probably being used as the officers hi vis vests is broken and they're using spares. 

Joint protection services and specialist roles will more than likely use black vests. I am unsure if that's because they don't have to adhere to the uniform policy or if it's simply not practical. Such as fire arms looking nice and bright like a target.
