The Metropolitan Police Department is getting a new look.

An MPD tweet on Monday detailed the change that takes place later this month, stating that its sworn members, through the rank of sergeant, will begin donning new uniforms that will consist of a dark blue color scheme, including shirts and trousers.

The revamped uniform — meant as a more modern look — contrasts the classic D.C. light blue uniform.

“The modernized look [that includes the officers’ shirts and trousers] provides uniformity of appearance and the clean lines, trim tailoring and durable fabric will ensure that our members can be more comfortable while keeping communities safe,” the department tweeted.
