    *cough* lol.. i actually dislike black on black or blue on blue....

    if i was in charge of making uniforms, i would diffently stay away from meduim blue,yellow and white..

    now like a forest green over black or tan over black or brown is not that bad..

    i do like red over black with red stripes... but not many ppl do...

    i also like dark grey over black :P

      Some people will likely disagree with me, but I have lost my faith in 5.11. Ironically, a little over a year ago I loved 5.11 Uniforms. I especially like the long sleeve uniform shirt with those unique chest pockets, but they don't make any uniform shirts in grey. Anyways, 5.11 is great if you are fine with replacing your uniform every 6 months. Everything I have ever bought from 5.11 has fallen apart within 6-9 months of purchase. We're talking polos, socks, jackets, etc. At the same time, I wont be caught dead in anything made by Lawpro for the same reasons. Elbeco and Blauer is a better choice. Yes, it will cost you more initially, but the quality is unmatched. JMHO

        Elbeco is a high quailty shirt, creases hold well, thick and not "floppy and see thru like a lot of other shirts are" all though it is a lil warmer than some ill take my Elbeco's over anything else ive tried including galls line of shirts...

              Patrol Rifle in the trunk. I want the same. Why? Because a rifle puts more accurate fire on target. And if its bad enough that you need a rifle, waiting 30 minutes for the police to setup, coordinate, then arrive isn't going to help you or your client.

                  Stop thinking! You're going to do something right over there...

                  On another note, I never understood why you would lock a long gun, rifle or shotgun, in the trunk. When I was working a post for a warm body company in the early 90s, I was put in "charge" of a bunch of non-licensed ticket takers at a venue. The security company's grand idea to save money - they take tickets, I take enforcement action, they save on licensing fees. One of the uniformed ticket takers was a Clearwater Police officer who was just retired. 90% of the ticket takers were former LE, and all of us had 4 hours to kill in the breakroom. So we started telling stories to pass the time.

                  Got to the part about where Clearwater Police put their shotguns in the trunks of their cars, because the shotgun couldn't fit in the passenger space. His words were priceless:

                  "Sirs! Yes, you six thugs in the car! Stay where you are while I go to the trunk and get my shotgun, please!"

                              We are all beautiful in our own unique way.

                              Working in house, we dress as the poulation does. Golf shirt, dress pants and wear the company ID.
                              When I started here in the 80's, we wore business suits - pin stripe - that were supplied, and our own shirts & ties.

                              Worked with guns before this job though.

                                Uniform

                                Regardless of the style, it's very important that it is worn in a dignified manner. Pants pressed, shirt laundered and ironed, shirt and pants tucked in properly, and good posture. If you wear a clip-on tie, it needs to be the proper length, clean and pressed, and fit the collar correctly.

                                A sloppy uniform conveys indifference and laziness.
