Officers from NYPD’s 48th Precinct in 1971

I couldn’t find any good history information on the net, but I think that style of winter blouse was used into the 1980s. In all my recent visits to NYC, I’ve never seen an officer with that or even the leather jacket the other officer is wearing. (FYI – movie where you get good look at both styles is “Fort Apache the Bronx”) I’ve seen some recent pictures where officers have more of a “pea coat” style jacket on, but it seemed to be more in ceremonial situations.
