    No. I have never seen officers wearing berets with their uniform.

      InterCon Security did at one of the contracts in Oakland, CA. They also wore ascots and it did look silly.

              Something is off on that photo. The Whitestone Group badge is photoshopped. The real badge on the belt has what appears to be an Ohio state seal on it. I do not believe security personnel can have a state seal in Ohio.

                I disagree. Looking closely, I think it is red white and blue, the shield that goes in front of the Eagle. I also believe if you look closely to the right of the shield, you can see Eagle wing.

                  Depends on the site and situation. If is is cold then a beret would suit best to keep your head warm, looks good and finishes off a uniform. In Australia with such a harsh sun, we tend to wear Akubras which are working cowboy hats (not some pretend hat) which keeps your face shaded from the sun but if the wind gets under it you are in for a sprint to catch it. There was only 1 company I ever knew that had them but they did not last too long because the staff refused to wear them correctly and did too many impressions of FRANK SPENCER - British Comedy Hero.

                    I opened it up in Photoshop. The patch may of been post-processed, which makes it look a little too uniform for an online picture. So, that may actually be on the uniform.

                    The badge on the belt, however, uses what looks like a Smith and Warren Ohio state seal. This is not the normal state seal, and is the one that Ohio sheriffs use, for whatever reason. It could be that Whitestone are special deputies, I remember something about that ability in Ohio statute.

                    Or, it could be like in Wisconsin, where any one can use a state seal on a badge or business materials.

                    On the badge on the belt, the colors are blue, dark blue, orange/tan, dark orange, orange, dark orange.

                      From my own experience. Berets suck in the cold weather. I think they are purely for good looks and dont really provide any advantage.

                        Yes but that is because your winters suck and are so cold, dogs are stuck to trees in mid session. Watch Caps are the preferred choice in winter unless you are working a high visibility post - but I always had one and a baseball cap in my work bag just for this any weather. I think I would love to have a white Xmas but not driving through it to get to work would be a good idea for me I think.
