Why do D.C. Metro Police wear blue helmets like UN troops?

Here are pics of Washington, DC metro police at our nation’s capital, wearing sky blue colored helmets on their heads:

Sky blue is the color that United Nation troops wear on their heads, whether helmet or beret:

To my knowledge, DC metro police are the only police in the U.S. who wear the same blue-colored helmets as the UN.

Here are pics of the police riot gear of three U.S. cities: Boston, Dallas, and Seattle. Notice that their helmets are all black in color, not blue.
