THE Mijas Local Police are to be fitted with completely new uniforms over the next two years as they become more in keeping with the town´s corporate image.

The old style blue and yellow uniform gives way to a more elegant totally navy-blue uniform after five years which is to be produced in the highest technology and designed fabric which will be comfortable, functional and at the same time have elements of protection to give officers greater security.

There will be summer and winter clothes and for the first time, the flag and shield of the town will be included o the uniforms with the flag on the back and the badge on the front.

All of the fabrics used in the new uniforms are environmentally friendly, as are the rest of the accessories which have been made from recycled, sustainable and reusable material. The only difference between the uniform that the agents will wear lies in the central reflective on the body of the uniform which will be visible in low light.

Currently, the staff of the Local Police consists of 145 officers as well as eight interns who it is hoped will qualify to join what is expected to be the increased team including one who has certain mobility difficulties.
