LANSING (AP) — Michigan State Police are retiring the traditional campaign-style hats troopers have worn for the past two years.

MSP announced in a Facebook post Sunday that it’s going back to the garrison hat as part of its official uniform.

The announcement says that since December 2016, state troopers have worn a campaign-style hat in celebration of the law enforcement agency’s 100th anniversary. State police say that broad-brimmed style was worn by original MSP members until the early 1920s.

The garrison cap will return troopers to a look more conventionally associated with policemen.
