The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Usman Baba, has approved a new and improved dress code for female police officers in the country.

The Acting Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

Adejobi said the new dress code would permit female police officers to wear stud earrings, and headscarf under their berets or peak caps as the case may be while in uniform.

He said that the dress code was unveiled during the I-G’s meeting with strategic police managers on Thursday.

According to him, police have workforce from every local government in the country with different ethnic and religious backgrounds.

“Other countries that have adopted same dress code include Canada, the United States of America, Sweden, Turkey, Australia and the United Kingdom,” he said.

The spokesperson said the dress code was optional but added that senior women police officers had been urged to ensure compliance with the approved standard for those who would adopt it.

He said the development was in line with international best practices, to address the growing concern for gender mainstreaming and respect for culture and diversity. (NAN)
