Complaints have flooded in from a police union after officers were given pink face masks to wear on duty. A number of the pale pink masks were handed to police forces in several Italian provinces during the Covid-19 pandemic for officers to wear in recent weeks. Now, the union of Italian police officers, which represents 1/5 of the Italian police force, say the colour of the masks could "damage the image of the institution". In a letter to the head of the Italian police force, the secretary-general of the Autonomous Police Union (SAP), Stefano Paoloni, protested against the pink masks. Paoloni said they were "unsuitable" for police officers and said the decision to approve the purchase is "perplexing". A statement from the union reads: "We call for immediate action to ensure that colleagues serve with masks of a different colour e.g. white, blue or black. "In any case [masks should be] consistent with the uniform of the State Police, avoiding devices in other colours or with any decorations to be considered absolutely inappropriate." The union said it is not prejudiced against the colour pink, but has objected due to the "strict uniform policy" of the country's police officers. Face masks are mandatory in all indoor and outdoor public spaces in Italy, while FFP2 masks must be worn when using public transport or entering theatres, concert halls and cinemas until April. The SAP - which claims to have 20,000 members - added that the pink masks had been given to officers in the provinces of Pavia, Varese, Ferrara, Siracusa, Venice, Sondrio, and Como. On Twitter, the Italian deputy minister for infrastructure Teresa Bellanova said that "respect for the uniform does not come from the colours, but from the behaviour and work of the men and women who wear it".
