    "Hijab approved as uniform option by Scotland Police


    The hijab has become an optional part of the Police Scotland uniform as the force works to encourage Muslim women to join the service.
    Previously, officers could wear the religious headscarf with approval but it is now formally part of the force uniform.

    Police Scotland said it is working to make the force "representative of the communities we serve."

    The formal announcement was welcomed by the Scottish Police Muslim Association (SPMA), an organisation set up in 2010 to build closer ties with Muslim communities.





    Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: "I am delighted to make this announcement and welcome the support from both the Muslim community, and the wider community, as well as police officers and staff.

    "Like many other employers, especially in the public sector, we are working towards ensuring our service is representative of the communities we serve.

    "I hope that this addition to our uniform options will contribute to making our staff mix more diverse and adds to the life skills, experiences and personal qualities that our officers and staff bring to policing the communities of Scotland."

    A report to the Scottish Police Authority earlier this year showed there were 4,809 applications to join Police Scotland in 2015/16, of which 127 (2.6%) were from ethnic backgrounds.

    It read: "Based on these figures, it is clear to see that challenge Police Scotland faces. If the black and minority ethnic groups (BME) national average of 4% is to be met within the organisation, an additional 650 BME recruits are required across all areas of the business.

    "Considering current application trends, this would appear to be unachievable."

    The Metropolitan Police in London approved the hijab as part of its uniform more than a decade ago.

    SPMA chair Fahad Bashir said: "This is a positive step in the right direction, and I am delighted that Police Scotland is taking productive steps in order to ensure that our organisation is seen to be inclusive and represents the diverse communities that we serve across Scotland.

    "No doubt this will encourage more women from Muslim and minority ethnic backgrounds to join Police Scotland."

    Police should appear religiously neutral.

    Ironically, you'd be one of the first beheaded for your views if they did come en masse.

    Sounds like some more Euro trash problems that don't impact the US.

    Why are these Euro fags posting on some Stern related message board?

    "Meet Minnesota's first Somali woman police officer

    The Twin Cities has the largest Somali community outside of Somalia, and one Somali woman is one of the latest to be sworn in to a metro area police department.

    Kadra Mohammed is one of the first 12 new Metro Transit Police Officers. "I'm excited, definitely excited." She is the first sworn in female Somali officer in Minnesota and quite possibly the country. "It's just a step forward, I plan on making more steps forward in my career, so I'm very excited for that."

    Fox 9 first met Kadra over a year ago when St. Paul police hired her to be a community service officer. She was also the second officer in the country to wear a special hijab with her uniform.

    Now, she will have a badge and a gun, while she rides Metro Transit buses and trains.

    "She represents that large population of Somali women who use transit. I hope when they see her on the train on the bus they feel more comfortable." Chief John Harrington

    The first Somali sergeant in the US, Waheid Siraach, who is currently on a leave of absence to train national police back in Somali, awarded Mohammed her badge. "To have first Somali female officer in Minnesota, it's an historic day for the people of Minnesota and the Somali community."

    Somalis are not all muslims and the hijab is also not necessarily muslim but desert garb.
