Turkey allows female police officers to wear headscarf

The headscarf ban for Turkey's police forces has been lifted following amendments made to the dress code under the scope of the democratization package passed by the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) in 2013.

Starting August 27, women serving in the Turkish National Police will be able to wear headscarves, the Official Gazette announced on Saturday, Daily Sabah reports.

The regulation notes that the headscarf must match the color of the uniform and must be plain, without any patterns.
