NM police chief urges uniform color change

Report says lighter-colored uniforms result in fewer complaints about police

By Vic Vela
Albuquerque Journal

A kinder, gentler uniform may soon be coming to a Santa Fe police officer near you.

Santa Fe Police Chief Ray Rael wants to transition patrol officers' dark-colored uniforms to a lighter shade of blue. Meanwhile, officers' patrol cars are going the opposite direction - back to black.

Rael, as part of a report on the police department that will be presented at an upcoming meeting of the City Council's Finance Committee, cites "psychological research" that points to lighter-colored police shirts increasing "officer approachability," while decreasing "negative emotions and feelings associated with dark colors."
