Reason for different police hats and helmets?


Hoping someone can answer this.

In most episodes the uniformed Police wear the hats with black and white markings on. In some episodes though, certain characters wear hard helmets with silver insignia on the front. Why do they have different hats? Any special reason for the change?

Flat caps were worn by officers in car patrol and the traditional helmet was worn on foot patrol as these helmets couldn't be worn in cars.

Interesting. Many thanks for this.
