SIKH OFFICERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO WEAR THE TURBAN via: Sikh Officers Association
Today is a proud moment of Sikhs around the world. We are pleased to announce that Sikh Officers Association #SOA worked with the New York City Police Department #NYPD to allow all Sikh Officers to wear the Turban.
Before this policy change, Sikh Officers were only authorized to wear the patka with the Uniform Hat. The new policy change was announced during a press conference at Madison Square Garden.
Sikh Officers Association and the Sikh Community would like to thank New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City Police Commissioner NYPD James P. O’Neill for allowing Sikhs to wear the turban. We encourage Sikh Community to sign up for the upcoming NYPD Police Officer Exam.
If you have any further questions regarding the new policy and the upcoming Police Officer Exam, please contact us.
