      Lol

      That's funny.... anyways, that seems to be the norm up here in WI. I've seen Cops with beards....weird. Me personally, since I couldn't grow a beard to save my mother's life, I think I'd be ok.

        I went ahead and started a thread on 'grooming standards-beards' so we can discuss this in more detail.

          Good idea. I'll move my post.

            I look past the big freakin beard on that sergeant, once I found out that Racine and Kenosha PD allows beards.

            Other than the fact they're all supervisors, all in tight with the company, and most of their duty rigs scare me (Zero retention)...

            Go for it. Just make damn sure you have a good holster.

              I could never wear a beard. It makes my face stink like last week's armpit and makes me look like Spock's evil twin.

                Other than that, here's another you might find interesting viewing:

                When I was working in a steel mill, the s/o's had red lights and sirens and the only time we had used them was for emergency responses and some security breach incidents. They were also approved by the state.

                  Rumor has that some New England states run that way and that pa was going to All red and sirens for fire/rescue/ems volunteers and doing away with blue lights and the state and local le's will have straight blue. I know my one friend went to North Carolina and was stopped for having a blue bar light on his truck.

                    He would have trouble here too. Louisiana reserves Blue for LEO only. I've been told by Volunteer firefighters from Texas, who are allowed blue lights, that they have been pulled over and given the third degree while visiting here in Louisiana.

                      Did the big guy put his finger in an electric socket?

                      This also reminds me of the officer appearance thread that I added.. everyone has different color pants and I bet the big guy has the 45 degree pitch going on underneath his coat.

                        They're wearing three different uniforms. One appears to be a Class A with sweater, the second a Class C with Navy Blue BDU pants, the third a Class C with Black BDU pants.

                          If they are, I haven't heard it yet. NY and NJ have red or red/white for LE, and CT has red/blue. MA does have blue/blue and VT, NH, may have blue as well. In CT, POV volunteers must use blue/no siren for fire and green/no siren for ambulance. No one can run red on their POV unless they are a chief or deputy chief of fire, ambulance, or director of emergency management. Even amber requires a flashing light permit. To me blue/blue makes more sense for police and red or red/white for fire and ambulance. I'd like to see all volunteers with green courtesy lights and general security with amber or amber/white lights.

                            I thought NFPA recognized green as a command post for fire service vehicles or not unless its just in pa.

                              I not sure about the NFPA standard. I do know that in CT, green is used as a courtesy light for ambulance volunteers and blue for FD volunteers.

                              Some fire departments refuse to allow volunteers to use courtesy lights because of the potential for abuse/reckless driving. Personally, I don't have a problem with it. I always pull over and let them pass. Could be my house or family!

                                NFPA designates green lights for Incident Command vehicles.

                                Of course, in most states, it is not a requirement to pull over for a green light, only red or blue facing forward. So, those green lights, alone, do not indicate an Incident Command vehicle, nor do they indicate you are required to yield.

                                I've always wondered what act or statute designated purple for funeral directors. It seems, very strange, for them to use purple. I've noticed, though, that up here - they throw an amber light bar on the lead car, and cannot violate traffic laws related to intersection traffic control devices. If the light turns red, the car line must stop. Police and Fire funerals have law enforcement officers providing escort, with lights, to keep the line whole.
