Superintendent, New South Wales Police Force, 1898

Officers of the Police Force wore a braided jacket like that worn in undress by infantry officers, although the latter only had four bars. The headdress is a kepi with black lace band and embroidered crown attached to the front and lace covered button on the top. Over the jacket is worn a cross belt with metal fittings. For a 'foot' officer this consisted of a mount, chains and whistle. For a mounted officer the whistle was replaced by a set of pickers, as worn by the cavalry. Trousers, overalls and breeches were worn depending on the duty.
