UniformEdit

(officers have 2 standard uniforms and one dress uniform issued)

  • Dress Uniform: Uniform hat, Dress Jacket, Pressed Black Trousers, polished black leather shoes, Long sleeved Blue or Black uniform shirt with necktie (with MPD Insignia on it), badge, name plate, commendation bars, department patch on left shoulder, American flag on right, cold weather jumper is optional and bears all the same badges as the shirt. The entire ensemble is very smart and gives the officer a strong air of authority (+1 to all presence rolls to command, intimidate or impress people) but is rather restrictive (-1 to all rolls involving running, jumping or other athletics actions)

  • Standard Uniform: A Light Blue or Black Shirt (long or short sleeved) with nameplate, black trousers, badge and department patch, hat, black jacket and jumper are optional. These uniforms tend to ensure cooperation from the public (+1 to persuasion) This can be modified depending on the job you are doing, e.g. cyclists can wear shorts, motorbikes wear jackets.

  • Battle Dress"uniform" (BDU): Not worn under normal circumstances, this uniform is any clothing with a badge suited to high stress physical work often tough denim shorts or combats with a vest and some sort of shirt with a jacket and running shoes or boots (+1 to all rolls involving running, jumping or other athletics actions, but -1 to all presence related rolls.) This is NOT acceptable for standard patrol work except under times of extreme stress. (Basically what detectives wear in films like Bad Boys. Midway is a relativly good city going through a bad patch, so it's very inappropriate at the moment.)
