The article analyzes a problem of ordnance of police officers with service uniforms. To this end there are discussed aspects of legal regulation and administration of ordnance of officers with service uniforms and samples of courts practice. There is taken the view that ordnance with service uniforms is a social guarantee established by the law, which cannot be denied by the lack of money or absence of postlegislation.
The conclusion is made in the article that attempts of leaders of Lithuanian police to tackle the problems of ordnance with service uniforms by the means of legislation are not efficient: systems of ordnance with service uniforms under creation do not allow satisfaction of needs of officers, therefore they are forced to tackle the problems risen with the help of the courts. It is proposed to change legal regulation of service uniforms ordnance.
