Why do they have a different uniform?

Four members of the Police Force stationed in Mellieha are currently reporting for duty wearing different uniforms from their other colleagues. This is not because they are Community Police.

The Police Force is planning to introduce new uniforms in the months to come using a different design and material which is suitable for the local climate. As part of this process, uniforms with the design and material chosen have been given to these four Police officers to try out so that they can give their feedback about the material which has been chosen.  This is being done before the final step in the process when the Police Force will go ahead and order a new uniform for its more than 2000 members.
