Gardaí in Wexford will be among those to benefit from a new uniform which is being updated to provide more protection, durability and functionality.
It will be delivered to over 13-thousand uniform members at 560 Garda stations nationwide, and it’s expected to ‘go live’ in March.
The new uniform will consist of a soft shell jacket, a waterproof jacket, blue polo shirt, operational trousers and practical base layers.
A key finding of an internal Garda cultural Audit was a desire for a new, practical uniform for frontline Gardaí.
This is the third upgrade in 100 years and the first time the Operational Uniform, other than the uniform cap, will feature the Garda Crest.
