Police Unveils new ‘Khaki’ Uniforms for Traffic Officers

The new Khaki uniform will have specific features purposely to differentiate them from general duty police personnel.

KAMPALA, UGANDA: Uganda Police has today unveiled new uniforms for traffic officers ditching the all-white outfits with immediate effect.

The new traffic uniforms were unveiled by AIGP Asan Kasingye, the Chief Political Commissar.

Kasingye noted that all traffic officers countrywide will now be wearing Khaki, white belts and a cap ­­­bearing black and white color. The new Khaki uniform will have specific features purposely to differentiate them from general duty police personnel.

“Each officer will be given two pairs of uniform and starting tomorrow, they will be donning the new uniforms,”Kasingye said on Monday.

“The white girders will help prevent water from getting into the shoes of the officers.” The chevrons will also be in white.

“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.” He added.

The Chief Political Commissar also noted that uniforms for the Anti- Stock Theft Unit(ASTU), Marine and Aviation Police have also been changed.

“We are now 46000 officers in number and each one of us will get two new pairs of uniform,” Kasingye said, noting that detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division will also get uniforms that they can put on while in office but will also be given Kaunda suits.
