New Zealand police have also included the hijab in their official uniforms, encouraging more Muslim women to join the police force.
Newly-appointed officer Zina Ali will be the first policeman to wear a formal hijab.
A spokesman said the aim was to provide “inclusive” services and reflect a “colorful community”.
Other powers – such as the Metropolitan Police in London and the Scottish Police – have agreed to the hijab uniform.
In the UK, the London Police adopted the Hijab Uniform in 5 years, Scotland also agreed to wear the Hijab in the Police in 5 years.
In Australia, the Victorian Police Chief has been wearing the hijab for five years.
New Zealand police say the introduction of the hijab in official uniforms began late last year in response to a request from police to attend middle schools.
The new officer, Ms. Ali, who was born in Fiji and immigrated to New Zealand as a child, told the New Zealand Herald that she had decided to join the police after the Christchurch terrorist attack.
“I think there is a need to include more Muslim women in the police force, to stand up and support the people,” she told the National Daily.
It adds: “I feel good to go out and let people see the hijab as the official New Zealand police uniform. I think it will encourage more Muslim women to join us.”
