When India had British rule, their police used to wear white uniforms. But during the long duty, it became dirty quickly. For this reason the police personnel were also disturbed. Many times he had started to color his uniform in different colors to hide the dirt. Thus, their uniforms started appearing in different colors. Disturbed by this, the officers had prepared a colorful dye. Khaki color is a light yellow and brown mixture. That is why they used water of tea leaves or cotton fabric color as a dye, due to which their uniforms became dhaki color. Khak's meaning in Hindi is the color of the mattress. After wearing this dye color dye, the dust on the uniform of the police will be less visible than dust, stain etc. In 1847, Sir Harry Lumsden, officially adopted the uniform of khaki color and from that time the khaki color uniform was coming in the Indian Police.

 

Sir Henry Lawrence was the governor's agent of North West Frontier and was a resident of Lahore, who raised the "Corps of Guides" force in December 1846. The "Corps of Guides" force was a regiment of British Indian Army, which was built to serve on the north-west border. At that time Sir Harry Lumsden was made commandant and William Stephen Raikes Hodson was made the second of command and the responsibility of raising the "Corps of Guides" force was given. In the beginning, the men of this force used to do duty in their local dress, but in 1847, all of them adopted the uniform of Khaki or Uniform in the attempt of Sir Harry Lamsden. After that the regiment of the army and the police adopted Khaki uniform, which is still being run in India.

 

BPRD manual, the first modern police, which was the London Metropolitan Police, made its own Uniform in dark blue color in 1829, which was the paramilitary style uniform. . This blue color was chosen because British Army at that time wears red and white uniforms. Therefore, the blue color was chosen to look different from this army. 
Do you know where the first official police force was established? It was first established in New York in 1845 in the United States. Then there were volunteer policing there. Keeping in mind the London Police in 1853, New York Police also made its uniform, which kept the color dark blue and after seeing it, America and other states also started adopting police uniforms.
