New Navy Blue Uniforms on the Way for Wichita Police Officers
WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) - For the first time in 90 years, the Wichita police department is changing the color of the uniforms worn by its officers.
Police Capt. Brian White says during the next two years, Wichita officers will transition away from the tan uniforms to ones that are a very dark navy blue. As a nod to history and tradition, the new uniforms will still have the Wichita police department patch worn on the left-sleeve shoulder. He says before 1920, Wichita officers wore blue uniforms before switching to brown, and now the department is going back to blue.
Capt. White says the new uniforms are a better fit, have more fabric options, better accomodations for female officers, and are less expensive.
