Police handed woolly hats to stave off cold.

FRONT line police officers will be issued with woolly hats to help stave off the cold as they spend hours outside in freezing temperatures.

The scheme was approved by Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police Sara Thornton, and the new headwear is now being introduced across the force. This is the first time that front line officers in Thames Valley have been allowed to wear woolly hats as part of their uniform.

Around 6,000 police constables, sergeants and PCSOs are being issued with the "beanie" style hats, which are black with the word "police" or "PCSO" embroidered on them. They cannot be worn while on patrol or in patrol cars.
