Scotland Yard police have approved wearing Hijab Unifrom as an option for all the Muslim policewomen working with Scotland Police. This step was taken due to the encouragement of Muslim Women to join their service.
Recently, as we know, female police officers were already wearing Hijab, but now, they have made it as their official (optional) uniform.
Scotland Police says that they are making their workforce diversified, so the community they serve can have even more trust in them.
