    Anyone wear them? Likes? Dislikes? Recommendations.
    What if quotas did exist?!

      I think if you can find a way to hide them under your uniform shirt and/or vest, they would work pretty well. I would like a hidden set if they were made right.

        Who cares how they look when they very well could save your back long enough to make it to retirement? Too many officers want to parade around looking like a Mexican general rather than wear a practical uniform from the 21st century.

              Get the hidden ones. You will not regret it. They are a little pain to get on, but it feels a lot better. Check out the duty gear forum.

                I'm with ateamer on this one...as much as I believe in the concept of command presence with good uniform wear (shined boots, cleaned and ironed uniform) I also recognize this is a new age for law enforcement. We're encountering threats and situations that were never before anticipated before.

                Simple things like white vs black undershirts.
                http://www.forcescience.org/fsinews/...of-death-real/ Here's a few choice quotes from the article:

                The problem is by no means limited just to white T-shirts under a dark uniform, Avery emphasizes. “Light-colored shoulder patches, shiny badges, bright metal on hats, an activated flashlight-anything that creates a contrast can be dangerous. In semi-darkness like ambient moonlight, even sweat on your face and hands can be reflective.”

                So far as the Triangle of Death is concerned, “Don’t equate looking professional with wearing a crisp white T-shirt under your uniform,” Avery cautions. “Dress for your mission: that’s the dress code for the modern officer.”

                Dark colored uniforms, name tapes, sew-on badges. These should be the norm, IMHO. Shiny badges and pins are great for class-a uniforms, but I believe the days of bling for patrol should come to an end.

                        I personally can't stand to see a white t-shirt under a dark uniform. As I am not a sworn officer, I never thought of it as an officer safety issue but now I can't stand it even more!!

                          To the best of my knowledge, these are forbidden for use by us.....you might get a waiver with a Drs' note.......

                          And we are required to wear white t-shirts too......

                          FJDave, pass me a couple of those Motrin, would ya?.....

                              One of the agencies I put in for as a reserve officer allow suspenders and BDUs, so I'm hoping they'll allow me the same uniform standard. They look like a tact team more than police officers IMHO.
