Police have announced a change of operation uniform for the Anti-Stock Theft Unit.
This was announced by Mike Longole, the Regional PRO Moroto Police.
Longole said they are changing the uniform for easy identification and to suit the environment the forces are operating in.
“We wish to inform the general public that the Anti Stock Theft Unit (ASTU) is in the final process of changing its Operation Uniform,” Longole said.
The change in uniform will take effect from next week.
The unit, which is directly charged with the responsibility of mitigating cattle thefts, mostly operates in Karamoja and the neighbouring districts.
The uniform formerly used by the ASTU will now only be used by police personnel attached to the Field Force unit (FFU).
He urged members of the public not to be alarmed when they notice the change.
