A dramatic change at the Statehouse in Montpelier, Vermont.

The coppers have new outfits!

Veteran Capitol Police Chief Dave Janawicz [left] and the other three gentlemen who make up the distinguished Capitol Police Force have bagged the white shirts and gray pants and ties and gone dark blue!

"It's different," said Chief Dave, who has been patrolling the halls under the Golden Dome since 1995. "If you have dandruff, it'll show," he quipped.

Why the switcheroo?

Chief Dave said the idea was to make the Statehouse police "more easily recognizable as police officers."

I don't know. I never had any trouble recognizing him, even with the goatee.

What do you think?

I miss the white shirts. It's the Vermont Statehouse not Detroit.
