Edmonton Canada police approve newly designed hijab for uniform..fucking hell
EDMONTON - Edmonton Police Services has designed and approved a new hijab female police officers can wear as part of their uniform.
A hijab tailor worked with the police tactics training unit, as well as the police equity, diversity and human rights team, to design a head scarf that covers the head and neck of an officer without covering the face.
“After rigorous testing, it was determined that the head scarf did not pose any risk to the officer wearing it, or reduce officer effectiveness, nor interfere with police duties or public interactions,” reads a statement from Edmonton Police Services.
Changes to the uniform policy for police have been approved by various police committees and people in the Muslim community.
