This page is a combination of uniforms past and present that have been worn by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police.  This and will always be a work in progress. I will try to place them in order of when they were worn but information on this is limited to me.  Text, photos and information on this subject will always be welcome. Please don't hesitate to correct any errors I may have made. All I ask is that you provide the proper information for me to correct my mistake.

It has been difficult to keep track of a 3,000+ person department that is 150 years old and their uniforms. I would be grateful for any photos and factual information.
