Ffp2 masks to the police and the union arises. “It seemed only right to write to the Chief of Police, Lamberto Giannini, since supplies of pink FP2 have arrived in some provinces. In this moment in which, the use of the aforementioned devices has become mandatory, on many more occasions than the provisions of the previous decree law, it seemed undesirable for the uniform to receive protection devices such as those reached in some provinces “. Thus Stefano Paoloni, secretary general of Sap, who sent a letter to the head of the police to bring to attention the “unusual” supply of pink Ffp2 masks that is taking place in “numerous police stations, including Pavia, Varese, Ferrara, Syracuse and Venice “. “The problem – he explains in a note – does not arise from a prejudice on color, but from the fact that the use of the uniform is regulated. ‘Institution to which you belong “. “Especially in a historical moment, in which the narrative tells us of a growing aversion towards the Police – continues Paoloni -, it becomes necessary to adopt sobriety and respect for the uniforms worn. Things that must be part of the sphere of those who is called to enforce the rules. Therefore, the use of unsuitable accessories that do not represent the Administration is not recommended. We therefore believe that the clothing and accessories used must be appropriate and consistent with the uniform, just as it is not recommended to use eye-catching masks or with excessive ornaments and which do not bear symbols of reference to the institution “. “We therefore believe that colors that are not consistent with the uniform give a semblance of less authority, always bearing in mind the particular historical period and the prejudice that some harbor towards the police forces”, underlines the secretary general of the Sap. Which, as also written in the letter, says: “the reasons underlying the purchase of masks of a color that should appear prima facie not suited to our Administration are not known and the decision to approve this purchase raises perplexity”. SAP thus asks for “immediate action to ensure that colleagues work with masks of a different color (white, blue, blue or black) and in any case consistent with the uniform of the State Police, avoiding devices of other colors or with any decorations to be considered absolutely inappropriate, especially if purchased and supplied by the Administration “.
