A Sargent in Formal Uniform

Uniforms that the department wears are half of the reason an officer feels pride in their job. The uniform symbolizes, justice, courage, integrety and respect. While an officer moves through the ranks of the NYPD, their uniform changes with colors and emblems. Formal uniforms used in marches, funerals, and award ceremonies are the glory of an officer in the NYPD. Uniforms show everything about an officer, whether they are reliable or not, and if they are enthusiastic or not. Sloppy uniform, means two things: lazy and disrespectful.

Basic UniformsEdit

A NYPD officers uniform is a dark blue shirt, pants and tie. An officer above the rank of Sergeant wears the same uniform with a white shirt to symbolise his or her authority.
