  • Uniform at appointments?

    I have a dentist appt. during my shift. I have permission to go, but my question is that I will have to be in uniform. Should I change my shirt? Should I take off my duty belt? Anyone been in this situation?

    LOL, you should get some interesting answers on this one.

    I wouldn't even wear my uniform, but if you must, i'd def. put on another shirt and take the duty belt off.

      I'd deffinately change. No one wants to see a brave man in uniform tremble and cry...

      If your armed I dont think the dentist would like that either...
      I'm the guy you don't want to be around when your doing something wrong, but you can't wait for me to get there when your down, to fix you up...

        A duty belt could be uncomfortable sitting in a chair for so long and wearing your shirt does not look for the company either or you.

        I once got called in for a summary interview from a uniform shift that was armed. I came 30 minutes away after leaving and was armed, in full uniform and the like as I was heading off to cover another post. It did not seem to worry the Agency as the recruiter asked me more about my fill in work than accepting a full time job. As I had no time to change - was in between jobs and travelling to another post - I would not do it again if I had a choice.

          I know everyone is going to disagree with me here, but I think you're alright to wear it. Let's face it, it's only a security guard shirt. It's not like you're wearing a police/military uniform with weapons on you (unless of course you are armed. In that case, you might want to remove the duty belt.) I see soldiers out in public all the time in uniform. If they can get away with it, then I'm sure no one is going to care about a security guard wearing his shirt to the dentist.

            I'd definitly leave your duty belt in your car if possible. But I wouldn't worry about the shirt. Everyone has to wear a shirt, some uniforms, some not.

              I wouldn't wear it personally. Lets face it, ultimately a dentist is a doctor and their can be blood and stuff they use ( I.E. mouthwash, that impression making stuff ) that while safe for you might wreck havoc on your uniform shirt. Despite the bib they put on you and the suction there is still the posibility of some damage happening to your shirt. Besides I don't know about you but I HATE the dentist and everytime I leave one I swear my clothes smell like a dentists office. Maybe its just my imagination but I don't want to walk around all day smelling like flouride . just my .02 cents.

                I'd rather wear a nice undershirt that day and take the uniform shirt off. But if I had no shirt choice I'd at least leave the duty belt in the office or car, as the company policy dictates. My current/sort of last job's policy was no where but on site and on transit to site from home and back home fro site with duty belt. I guess they didn't want me shopping at Walmart with a tactical baton and pepper spray.

                  If the Doctor or Nurse was pulled over in the morning or just hate Security, you may be in for more pain LOL

                  I would change to street clothes, who wants all that blood over a work shirt, BTW, only the first 7 inches of the needle hurts....

                    The last tame I went to the dentist, I was in uniform and in a police car. I had a crown put on during my lunch break. I would not wear a uniform (including gun belt) if I would be under the influence of anesthesia or a controlled substance.

                      What kind of dentists are you guys going to, that you get blood all over the place? If you want, I've got a really good dentist, that my kids aren't even afraid to go to.

                        I hate seeing other rent-a-cops in uniform OFF-DUTY, especially at one of my security detials. It causes a risk for me. I personally wear a plain clothes jacket over my uniform to and from work. The last thing I want is to get stopped by the police and told, "oh so you are a security guard, so you think you can drive however you want?".

                          Lol what I find humorous is how people all think we are wanna-be cops. Personally I would never want to be a cop, I like the security industry.
