Black and blue

Just saw a sticker on a car saying “Blue lives matter”. After a second I realized it was referring to the police. And it raised a question in my mind, namely the logic of “blue”. It used to be, and I guess maybe still is, that the police were known as the “boys in blue”. However, round these parts, the police wear black, black and more black. Very Darth Vader. So … what’s it like near you? Are there still blue uniforms in evidence or is it more the dark side of the force aesthetic?
