The online exhibition From Breeches to Coveralls – The history of Finnish Police Uniforms

Police Museum, Tampere

  • 12.4.2016–

The history of the police uniform in Finland


What did the police uniform look like in the early years of Finland's independence? What did the gentleman police officer's uniform consist of? When did patrol officers start wearing coveralls?

The online exhibition features pictures, with explanations, of coveralls and driving outfits, head gear, footwear, and coats. Visitors can study the history of the police uniform on a timeline, or by theme. There are also model sketches with relevant insignia on display as well as original regulation texts which allow us to read how uniforms have been specified to look at different times.
