Edmonton police working on hijab option for uniform
by Allison Salz
A new uniform piece could 'open doors' for women of other cultures looking to begin a career with the Edmonton Police Service.
At an Edmonton Police Commission meeting Thursday it was revealed that EPS is working on introducing a hijab option to the uniform.
Natasha Goudar with the Equity, Diversity and Human Rights Unit said the conversation started when a recruiter was asked if EPS would "ever even consider allowing someone to wear a hijab."
