WICHITA, Kansas - The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department is considering new uniforms.
Sheriff Jeff Easter has been wanting to make the change since coming aboard.
The new uniforms would simply be a polo shirt and khaki or a darker style brown pant.
The sheriff's department is considering several options for those working in the detention facility to those working out on the street.
They say there are several reasons for the change.
"The uniform we wear, it can be hot. It's all polyester and it gets warm," said Lt. David Mattingly. "People will claim it's not functional. Obviously it is functional, we've been doing it for decades, we've been doing our jobs with that uniform."
The cost for changing the uniforms hasn't been decided.
The sheriff's department hopes to make a decision by the end of the year.
