This comes just months after the announcement that the Chief Constable is to reintroduce traditional police caps to the force thanks to funding provided by the Commissioner. The traditional caps return as part of a drive to uphold standards, and whilst some officers are currently still wearing the baseball caps, these are continuing to be phased out.
Mr Snowden said “Our officers should be pillars of the community and their smart appearance is at the very heart of this. We want officers to embrace their uniform and what it symbolises and police our county with pride.
“As we continue to take the fight to criminals and deliver the priorities that matter most to the public, I will continue to work closely with the Chief Constable to ensure that the force is delivering the best possible service for the people of Lancashire.
Chief Constable Chris Rowley said: “All of my staff are aware of the high standards that I expect from them and these inspections ensure these are upheld.
“The standard of their uniform reflects their levels of respect towards the job and their communities, and I will continue to work to make sure the county is getting the service they deserve.”
