  • Scandinavian Uniform Choice

    Helmet: We keep the helmet in the car, and only use it for bigger operations like demonstrations and for going into Christiania. People tend to throw stones at us there. So we end up using it pretty often. The chinstrap doesn't stay put and it...

  • In The Bag

    "The bag" is NYPD slang for the full uniform. If your bag is in perfectly pressed, crispy condition, you're probably a pussy. Real cops wear busted-out uniforms as a sign of experience and pride.

  • Stuck in the Middle

    I’m Dessie. I joined the Police Service of Northern Ireland three years ago and I’m based in Belfast. You may have heard of it. There are sometimes some mild disagreements between Protestants and Catholics here.
