IGP approves new dress code for female police Officers

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

The Acting Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this 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.

This would bring the need to guarantee inclusion, gender mainstreaming, ethnic and religious diversity in the work place for optimum output and professionalism.

According to him,“This has informed the improvement for effective global workforce diversity management.

He noted that other countries like Canada, US, Sweden, UK have adopted the same dress code.

The spokesperson stated that although the new dress code was optional, senior women police officers need to ensure compliance.

He noted that the development was in line with international best practices, to solve the growing concern for gender mainstreaming and respect for culture and diversity.
