Calgary police officers will defy order to stop wearing 'thin blue line' patch: Union

Toronto Sun: 'An order to remove the thin blue line patches worn by Calgary Police Service officers over concerns they’re racially divisive will be resisted, the head of their union said Wednesday.

'That vow came minutes after the Calgary police commission issued a public notice stating that in the interests of racial harmony, officers will be expected to drop the crests from their uniforms by the end of March.

'“People in our community have clearly expressed that the thin blue line patch on police officers makes them uncomfortable due to its history and current use by groups opposing racial equity,” commission chair Shawn Cornett said in a statement.

'“As policing evolves, so must its symbols. Discontinuing the use of a symbol that is undermining some Calgarians’ trust in the police is the right thing to do.”'

Finally the men in blue are sacking up.
