    We can wear white or black as our choice. Our uniforms are LAPD blue. The black looks much much sharper. White t-shirts just look tacky with the dark uniform. Officers with the white t's stick out more at night also.

    PM me....I have the article. My version is from KCPD.......and it is from an actual person not something that was bouncing around the web......

    I'm all for safety, but this seems like a non-issue.
    It is not about the banger being a great shot, it is about giving him a focus point when when you are in a dark alley or apartment complex. The area is exposed, and even if he is a bad shot (As most are), he may get your head or neck area. This is why we do not wear reflective writing on our vest (unless we are stuck working traffic control).

    It was either Fresno PD or SO. I like the black t-shirt idea just because it looks better than white and I have a ton of black t-shirts from motorcycle rallies and powerlifting meets.

    I have the safety bulletin. It came from a southern CA agency. Possibly Long Beach. One of their officers was shot this way a few months ago. Story was that bangers were shooting at the triangle as it served as a highly visible aiming point even during low light times. IIRC, the officer was shot by a 17yr old banger from about a block away on an unrelated traffic stop.

    If you're LE, send me a PM with official contact info and your agency email address, and i'll send it out.
    Thanks for the assist....as I am sure I deleted it and our system at work won't let me recover it since it's been so long......

    I got mine from the US Attorney's Office out here....as their LECC sends out safety bulletins all the time to us.....

    Agree with you.....but just putting out what the "Safety Bulletin" said..... I think I got it from the US Attorney's Office out here.....and they had sent it to everyone.....as the list was huge......

    I know a couple of places back home (my old agency included) that went to dark colored T-shirts becuase of this......

    It basically said that gangbangers were supposedly being taught to shoot for the white portion of the t-shirt on a uniformed LEO because there was no vest coverage there.....

    Yes I have heard of this but our agency won't consider the change unless we can offer some proof done in a study. I hate Politics.
    When I go to work, I will look for the email again.....but I think I zapped it.

    I will try to figure out who sent it and see if they still have it.....
