Police Boots and Uniform

This is one of the uniforms of Kepolisian Negara Republik Indonesia or POLRI (the Indonesian National Police). Different units have their own sets of uniforms whose designs are made not only to indicate which unit a policeman or policewoman belongs to but also what function he or she is performing at the time. Regardless of the designs, the colors are the same. They are the colors of the Indonesian Police uniforms.

Boots like these are worn by the traffic police or police patroling on motorbikes.

Glad you explained the boots were for motorcycle police.
The pants seem to have a special seat too. In fact, they could go horseback riding in that uniform.
BTW, do you have police on horses?

I was thinking the same question as Dina's. Do we, Pak Eki? Forgive my ignorance, but I never seen one so far.

What does the Pak title mean?

Dina and Henny:

Yes, Indonesia has police on horse, but their number is very limited. Good horses, as you know, are very expensive.
