Beginning in early 2013, Cornell University Police will begin wearing new uniforms, the first significant change in their official attire in 42 years.

The new look replaces the current nickel-gray shirt with a black uniform shirt with ventilated side panels. The shirt complements the multi-pocket black cargo pants the department switched to in 2010.

“The decision to change our uniforms came when our suppliers advised us they were phasing out our current uniform,” said Chief Kathy Zoner. “We also learned that our officers were in favor of a new look, and wanted to find a material that would provide them comfort and meet the seasonal extremes experienced in Ithaca.”
