According to officials, with the worsening of air quality here, masks will become part of the Delhi Traffic Police's uniform. The N95 masks are currently being procured and are expected to arrive next week.
"The masks will be delivered anytime next week and will be distributed to 5,000 personnel to minimise the effect of toxic air on their health," Garima Bhatnagar, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic), told IANS.
"The lot arriving after 5,000 N95 will become part of their uniform," she added.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police (Traffic) will be distributing 10,000 disposable masks to its personnel on Tuesday, which will help reduce some respiratory risks for a day.
