Police force ditches bobbies’ helmets for baseball caps to encourage the ‘non-binary transgender community’ to join up

A British police force is replacing its traditional helmets with US-style baseball caps, which it says are cheaper, more comfortable and not ‘gender-based’.

Northamptonshire Police says it is ditching the world-famous custodian helmet in a bid to encourage more transgender officers to join the force.

The so-called ‘bump caps’ will be issued to both men and women officers, completely replacing the old headgear by next month.
