New multi-faith head-coverings for female officers, A&S Constabulary

The Avon and Somerset Constabulary is issuing a number of female police officers and Police Community Support Officers with uniform-issue head coverings for use in places of worship.

The constabulary have created and issued the multi-faith head coverings to female officers identified as key liaisons with a number of community and faith groups. The officers will be able to wear them as part of their uniform when entering places of worship during their duty.

There are two versions of the head coverings to match the black of a police officer's uniform and the blue of the PCSO uniforms. Both garments are embroidered with Avon and Somerset Constabulary suitable for use by both uniformed and non-uniformed officers.

The head coverings were produced following recent work with the Mosque Initiative and the Aklima Initiative, the latter aimed at Muslim Women's Groups for Muslim women working and residing within the Avon and Somerset force area. The head coverings are designed to be used by officers not only in Mosques but in all appropriate faith settings.

The force have issued 15 head coverings to eight PCSOs and seven Police Officers, including Assistant Chief Constable Jackie Roberts, who are key community liaisons and involved with specific community and faith groups as part of their regular duties.

ACC Roberts said: "Producing head coverings for our officers and staff to wear in places of worship is part of our commitment to engage with all our communities. It recognises and respects the cultural and religious practices of our communities.

"This is a very positive addition to the Avon and Somerset uniform and one which I'm sure will be a welcome item for many of our officers."

Rashad Azami, Imam and director of the Bath Islamic Society, said: "It is highly pleasing to see that the Avon and Somerset Constabulary is introducing specially designed head coverings for female officers as part of their police uniform. This will go a long way in encouraging a trustful relationship between the police and the Muslim community.

"The A&S Constabulary has been working closely with the Muslim community in the area on many levels for the last few years. We have found their cooperation very helpful and hope this step will further strengthen the mutual relationship."
