Female police officers in Lebanon wear sexy uniforms to attract tourists

In a city in Lebanon, the mayor has a new radical and sexy plan to attract tourists and clean the country's image

Young and beautiful female police officers now patrol the streets of Broummana dressed in black mini-shorts and red berets. The new uniform is a plan by the mayor to not only improve the country's image but also increase tourism.

“Ninety-nine per cent of the tourists in the Mediterranean region wear shorts,” says Pierre Achkar,  Mayor of Broummana. “We in Lebanon want to change the bleak picture of Lebanon in the West,” he further tells RT’s Ruptly video agency.

The radical and sexy uniform has its critics. There have been complaints on social media about the concept of making policewomen wear sexy outfits just to attract tourists. Others say it is sexist because the uniform of male officers hasn't been changed.

The female police officers are down with the new sexy uniforms. “We came willingly to this work and we have accepted it with enthusiasm and we still hope that it will return in every summer season,” says Samata Saad, a female police officer.

There is no word yet if the new uniforms have brought in tourists yet.
