No, their uniforms are dark blue, not black. (At least the last time I saw my dads uniforms they were, and he is an SDPD officer). The cares have the rear and fron ends painted black with a white middle.
Otherwise, I dont know why this seems to be fairly standard.

Quoting Sprout5199 (Reply 6): Here in FL. state law is Sheriff's cars have to have a forrest green paint scheme, and our uniforms are green for the most part
In Tallahassee there is one law enforcement dept that wear khaki with Sheriff's hats (although they are not Leon Cty Sheriffs). They're the ones escorting Bobby Bowden when there are away games. Also, FSU's Police Dept uniforms are grey.
In Colombia, Police (Metropolitan and National) uniforms are green.

Perhaps the following web site might be of help, but I would suggest that as the colour of the old established police force was established during a time when everyone wore dark coloured clothes, as this did not show the dirt associated with those times

The NOPD ended a long tradition of light blue uniforms recently as they had to replace countless uniforms stolen from dry cleaners in the wake of Katrina. They have now switched to a dark navy uniform that I think looks nice but most of the officers hate.
New York State Troopers wear purple, which just makes me laugh.
