Polizei Diensthundführer Jacke

Most of the German states have changed their green and tan duty uniforms for US style blue uniforms. They stopped issuing the leather police jackets that went with this uniform. They dumped these jackets on the civilian market several years ago but I just discovered them not long ago.

This jacket is brand new Polizei issue for the North Rhine Westphalia state and local police. The patches are manufacturer sewn as the lining for the jacket has no stitching through it. The manufacturer is

Two pockets inside, and four outside, sleeved epaulets as the German police wear rank on their shoulder boards, but oddly enough, no badge. Not even on the duty uniform.

I thought as working K9 people would have an interest in this jacket. I have checked with ILCS 720, the Illinois criminal code, as well as local LE and they have no problem with non-police wear of this jacket. Small town too and I know all the local LE.
