    Q676: Can I be arrested by a police officer if he/she is not wearing a hat?

    A police officer does not have to be in uniform to make an arrest. There are some powers that a police officer must be in uniform to exercise but that does not mean that the officer has to be wearing a hat, only that they can be clearly identified as a police officer from their clothing.
