    If that's how you classify them where you work, then you wear a Class B. The person pictured in your avatar is wearing a Class A uniform.

    My boss won't allow the guys to wear polos. I feel sorry for them, they have to wear Blazers all year round.

    Perhaps you're right. Everybody around here still calls them class A's though, including the cops.

    Here on Kwajalein a Constable is an unarmed, non-sworn, observe and report type of security guard. Why KPD chose the title "Constable" over "Security Guard" is beyond me.

    Constables only carry radios and no weapons whatsoever. They have no powers of arrest or detainment. If they observe something, they are to call a sworn officer over the radio to come and handle the situation. Constables are usually deployed at the Dock Security Checkpoint or the Airport, and there are two Constables assigned to the Marine Police as deckhands.

    In the U.S. some states use "Constable" as a title for sworn officers. I believe Texas has several Constable departments. In California, where I am from, there are no constables. The only titles for sworn officers are Police Officer, Deputy Sheriff, Deputy Marshall, or Park Ranger. The California Highway Patrol is unique, in that their official title is "Traffic Officer" but no one ever calls them that. Most use "officer", but I hear they like to be called "trooper"!

    I wish I could wear a polo but its not allowed.

    Assuming I get my bike for patrol then I will get a summer uniform. Untill then its shot sleeve w/o tie in summer.

    I'm not necessarily giving you advice...I know most guys and gals here have it together, but there is always a newbie around somewhere that can get the wrong idea.

    IN the US depending on the area there isn't any difference. Some places constables are process servers.

    Be careful with pictures like that of you floating around, as soon as you have to subdue a suspect with your baton that pic may be used against you to show that you are "gung ho".

    Always take professional looking pics that show you as a "Mature Officer" not a crazed ninja, kung fu commando.

    Davis002, those are not escrima sticks. No matter how much they LOOK like them, and how well it applies, they're escrima sticks.
