Under the Co-project Director of the Canton police of Zurich and Bern, Switzerland have developed twelve cantonal police corps, several city police forces and the SBB transport police, the corps of cross-renewal of work uniforms. "Such a large joint project, it was not the Swiss police landscape yet," says Schaub.
Only color adjustments in the Stapo

In particular, you don't own vest to Wear along with the Stapo compulsory Stall.
The 80 police officers that volunteer for a Tragtest, came also to the conclusion that you prefer the current Uniform for the urban work in many areas.

"The uniforms for the corps are very satisfactory," says Kapo spokesman Schaub. He is satisfied overall with the project. In particular, because the design was elaborate.
In the mountains and in the flat country
"The requirements of the new Uniform were huge," he says. The new presentation should exude authority, but not intimidating. They had to meet in mountain regions, as well as in the flat country of their purpose. In addition, they had to meet high ecological and quality standards, but will not be too expensive. "The fact that we succeeded in that, makes me proud," says Schaub. With a part of the contract, the Zurich-based company "Cross-Fashion, was entrusted".
