The National Police Service (NPS) has been requested to ensure that female police officers do not break the dress code prescribed by the service.

Deputy Inspector General of police, EDWARD-MBUGUA

In a correspondence circular released on Wednesday, Deputy Inspector General of police Edward Mbugua reported that it had been found that female officers wore their hair in inappropriate ways that violated the dress code.

“I draw your attention to the Service Standing Orders Chapter 11 of the Dress Code Regulations, which clearly stipulates how officers should wear their hair,” reads part of the circular.


The rules require female police officers to style their hair in a manner that does not extend past the collar of their blouse, interferes with the wearing of any official headgear, and does not fall over the ears or the forehead.

According to the code, the hair of the officer should not be colored inconspicuous, artificial colors, and where the accessories are used to secure the hair, they should be simple in nature and of a color that blends with the hair.

In the case of female officers using make-up, Mbugua suggested that it should be subtle, discreet, and that only natural and clear polish should be used.

In August, police Inspector General Hilary Mutyambai asked all officers to observe high labels, particularly on social media, in a circular dated 4 August 2020 entitled ‘Dress Code Regulations.’

The IG pointed out that disregard for the dress code contradicts the rules laid down in Chapter 31 of the Standing Orders of the Service (SSO).

police uniforms should not be worn with any identifiable civilian clothes, articles, or anything that is not a police uniform. Mixing the uniform will not be authorized,” Mutyambai said in his letter.
