Yeah absolutely, but despite the police officers wearing dark green when I was a kid, I was familiar with the 'Boys in Blue' phrase for the cops, so it all converged and coalesced in my mind and will not move. I even found it jarring when it was unequivocally black without a hint of blue highlights! 
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

The first time I remember Dredd's outfit as black was Carlos drawing him in the Apocalypse War when the comic was still on the legendary bog paper. That's just my memory though.

To me his uniform is dark blue except if Carlos is drawing him.

I always thought of Dredds uniform to be a bit like a laypersons socks compared to priests socks, more a very very very dark blue.

There does seem to this myth about most black socks just being very dark blue. I've checked my black socks and I'm pretty sure they are just plain black, even the ones I bought in George at Asda.

I accept that to most people Dredd's outfit is black and they always knew it was.

I'm just saying that for me I always think of the uniform as dark blue because that's the way it was coloured in the olden days. 

Strangely however I don't think of Clark Kent/Superman as having blue hair.

Dark green?  Did you grow up in Germany?

I assumed he was from Northern Ireland like myself. The Police Service of Northern Ireland, and the Royal Ulster Constabulary before them, wear dark green uniforms. Its usually described as rifle green or bottle green.
