Britain’s Biggest Police Force Considers Plans to Introduce Gender-Neutral Uniforms

The Metropolitan Police – Britain’s biggest force – is considering plans to introduce gender-neutral uniforms, it has been reported.

The force is consulting its 30,000 officers on the current uniform and what changes should be made in future.

Sources claim the force could be in breach of the 2010 Equality Act by not providing separate uniforms for non-binary and gender-fluid officers, the Sun reports.

The newspaper states that an officer, who goes by Alex Blue, believes not providing separate uniforms could be indirect discrimination.
