AHMADABAD, India (AP) -- Soothing rose or tangy lemon? If all goes according to plan, people in the western Indian city of Ahmadabad should find themselves confronted by those two scents by the end of the year when they are stopped by police.
The city's police department is working with a team of designers to provide 8,000 officers with new uniforms that will be made with specially scented, lightweight fabric designed to keep the police officers sweet smelling and sweat free.
"We think that by end of the year, you will notice a new fresh look when you are intercepted by one of our men," said J. Mahapatra, the city's police commissioner.
Ahmadabad is brutally hot for half the year and its policemen, especially those directing traffic, can spend as many as eight hours a day outdoors.
It also doesn't help that a large number of the country's policemen are said to be overweight, a result of long work hours, poor eating habits and high stress.Alpha Phi Sigma Alum - Alpha Delta Chapter

I'm sorry, but when someone sprays sented air freshener in the bathroom, what you wind up with is an increased stink factor, not less. I would imagine that the same principle would apply to body odor lol

They need to make the vests smell like that. I hear that's one of the worst parts.

Indeed Beans...thats why I hang my vest up, spray it with Lysol and let it air dry.
I wonder if it would be better if they used those incense smoke spreaders. That way it can be used as a weapon if need be."Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes they need to go to jail."

Hmm interesting. But I agree that it may only make the smell worse... more sickening in fact... I guess there's only one way to truly find out.... lolLife is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

Personally, when I'm working I don't wear cologne, body spray, or scented deoderant.
