British police force present new Muslim female police uniform which doesn’t show the female form

The West Yorkshire Police have had a more modest uniform for its female Muslim officers designed. The uniform is loose-fitting ‘designed not to show female form’ with a looser tunic in hopes of recruiting more female officers from ethnic minorities.

In a statement regarding the new uniform, they have said they are open to suggestions from ‘all communities’ on uniform styles. The hijab or headscarf has already become a part of Muslim officers throughout the UK, but this is the first ever design of its kind.
