So is the soft uniform compulsory and going to be enforced all establishments? Or can you choose? If it is going to be enforced in all HMP what's the chances it will return back to original smart uniform? White shirt etc

I have to admit Im a fan of the white shirt, I had a familiarisation day and the Officers in the white shirts looked smarter and stood proud. I then seen a few in Polo shirts and they looked like a bag of shit.

Nothing says im proud of what I do than having a sharp looking uniform, but the polo just looks a mess. The police are headed down the same road and they also look a mess, if you look a mess how can you expect to be taken seriously?

Unfortunately I have no choice on the uniform i'm going for a YOI. Although at this rate, I will probably never make it.

As has been said on the other tread on this topic we need to be encouraging all serving officers to refuse to wear the polos on health and safety grounds this has the full backing of the POA because if you are responding to a general ararm and you run on to a wing where everything is kicking off you automatically look for the black and whites to distinguish between the good and bad guys and the polos will blend in with the prisoners loosing vital seconds when the shits flying
