With increased localization, the need for a municipal police system is emphasized in each region. This study is intended to analyze the role of municipal police uniform considering the change in security from the national to the local level based on the introduction of municipal police system. The study investigators developed the concept of centralized national police system and decentralized self-governing municipal police system based on a literature review and Internet research. The investigators analyzed the design of municipal police uniform by reviewing the systems in several other countries. The results revealed specific formative features of municipal police uniform such as representative ambivalence, expression of visual language, manifest visibility, and reflection of regional characteristics. The municipal police uniform is adapted to changes in local government requiring a shift of awareness on to municipal police compared with the existing national police. The creation of a municipal police uniform enhances the efficiency of work by projecting a resident-friendly image, social support and cooperation, which play a huge role in illustrating the exemplary service to promote a stable and peaceful society locally.
