    I'm a big fan of changing our uniforms...We wear white shirts which is just horrible for multiple reasons...

    Since I have no hair, I wish we were allowed to wear a ball cap while on duty and not the stupid cowboy dress hat...At least we are not required to wear our dress hat at all times...

    I think I am supposed to say dress (Class A) and hats.

    In reality - hats only when safe/practical. A campaign hat is not that bad in the summer sun outdooors.

    I'd like more easily maintained and functional uniforms. Nothing that looks too off - but a fairly sharp looking and tough. I think a jumpsuit would be good - minus all the zippers. I'm a cop, not a chopper pilot. Wonder if Bratwear makes them that way?

    Not sure. I'm working on whether or not they can add pocket faps.

    I think a sharp looking uniform conveys professionalism. I've seen too many cops that look like they just came out of the grease pit at Jiffy Lube, or else they look like mall security in khaki's and a polo shirt. When your uniform pants have more wrinkles than an old elephant's ass, it conveys an "I don't care" attitude, and the public picks up on that.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I too say that for normal Patrol duty the class A looks far better. Now I agree that K-9 and other units should wear BDU's or some other uniform.

    I feel that regardless of the uniform you are wearing it should be clean, pressed and presented in the best manner possible. Also Boots should have some form of a shine on them at least at the beginning of a shift.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that during interviews with convicted "cop-killers" they actually noted the shoes of officers and if I remember correctly they said that Officers with shined shoes cared more about their appearance and most likely their tactics as well and were targeted less.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.
