100 officers will be part of the pilot programme.
Gardaí could soon be wearing baseball caps.
They're going to be trialled from today in three Garda stations in Ballinasloe, Cork and Dublin.
100 officers will wear a soft baseball cap and a 'bump stop cap' which offers better protection.
They'll then give feedback on how the caps feel and what the public think about them.
The Garda Representative Association has backed the move - saying the current cap is "old-fashioned."
However former Assistant Garda Commissioner Dr. Pat Leahy isn't a fan, admitting he is a "traditionalist":
From tomorrow, we will begin a pilot of new operational uniform baseball caps in three stations: Ballinasloe Co. Galway, Terenure, Dublin and Bantry, Co. Cork.— Garda Info (@gardainfo) December 5, 2023
The pilot will include two sample caps: a soft baseball cap and a ‘bump stop’ cap.#KeepingPeopleSafe pic.twitter.com/jG7Dcq5Wg9
