Not-so uniform

Seems that the option to wear the hijab as part of the official uniform of Police Scotland is being adopted by a small number of Muslim officers. There is already provision made for Sikh turbans.
While we all support inclusivity and representation and applaud the commitment of those who wish to join the force, questions arise about religious neutrality in how our police are perceived.
Which other groups might now wish similarly to customise the state uniform ?
