As of now, any still or moving photography or images of police officers must show them wearing their correct shoulder numbers/markings and name badges if these areas of uniform are included within the shot.
If any of these items are missing the photography or images must not be used.
As a precaution, if you hold any photography or images that do not meet this instruction they should be culled from your libraries or other systems you may have for their storage.
If you are reprinting or updating any existing documents or materials, including moving images, the opportunity should be taken to check whether the photographs meet this instruction. If not, they should be changed.
If you work with any external suppliers you need to make them aware of this instruction.
Also, when putting any uniformed officers up for interview you should make sure that they have their shoulder numbers/markings and name badges in place.
