Yes.. unless it is 'old' stock issue. I still received the standard hat with yellow band covered with a blue stripe.
Remote referred to RCMP Aux.

My apologies to all for the confusion. :oops:
I was referring to RCMP Auxiliaries - not OPP.
RCMP Auxiliaries don't have a blue stripe anymore but I think that they did in the past.

The latest image I have seen of an RCMP A/Cst shows a plain grey shirt plain black pants and not even a shoulder patch! the hat was the same with blue band and they were wearing a vest. looks like a Grey Hound driver wearing body armour!
A lot can be said about how a person deals with an offence. Kicking a person when they are down doesn't make you look any better!

Auxiliaries here have the same shirt, but on their patch it says "Auxiliary". They have the same pants we do, just without the yellow stripe.

Their jackets also have "Auxiliary" on the back/sides too, as with their vests.

Yes! I was under the same impression...but then I saw the aux with the description I stated above...that was a bit boggling. I wonder if perhaps things change from division to division???

That was a Gray Hound driver perhaps? :mrgreen:
Things do not change from did to div where it comes to the uniform as far as I know. Some smaller, isolated detachments have some A/Members having pullout patches "saying" Police on the reflective strips. The blues are blue not black.

Our detachment's Auxiliaries wear the same jacket as us, police flap and all. The only difference is the little "Auxiliary" patch underneath the shoulder flash.

That design changed about 5 years ago. The word "Police" at the bottom of the patch was replaced with "Auxiliary/Auxiliare". The separate "Auxiliary" patch is no longer used in combination with the standard RCMP/GRC "Police" flash. The whole reason for the uniform changes were to eliminate "Police" from the uniform.

So really...why do you care? Sounded to me that you are just stirring the pot.

No the reason I care is because I dont want to give false information when I am talking about the Auxiliary program. And besides that why do you care??? I was just curious cant a guy ask a question? :twitch:

Exactly.

Mind you some A/Cst's have all patches changed but still the Soft Body Armor pullout has the new Auxiliary patch and POLICE on the reflective strip.
My Patrol jacket and Traffic jacket have the new patches and the little squares as well, it was an older issue, same as the Body Armor. I believe all the new kit comes with out of the 'Police' in the pocket and with no little Aux patches.

I'm just curious on why you think you should be giving information to people? You are not part of the program in your Div, you have never been apart of the program, and you're just right now trying to be an applicant to the Force. What makes you think you have the information about an organization and a program of that organization that you are not apart of? I was just curious too.

ok ... let me try this again! what I mean is it would be nice to actually hear it from the "horses mouth" so to speak, about whats what with the aux program...
