  • Graduation Gifts

    I have a friend that will be graduating from the Law Enforcement Academy and was wondering what to get him as a graduation gift. My question to you all is would you prefer something functional (that can be used on the job), or something different (like a plaque or something)?

        I got a seat organizer from the girlfriend when I graduated. My parents got me a range bag. My department gave me an FTO. I preferred the functional things rather than a plaque or something. The plaque is all well and good, but i still would have had to spend money on stuff for the job. Save the plaque, your friend is gonna know he graduated, get him something that he can use at work.

            I got a plaque, I like to get my own gear because I know what I need/want. the plaque was personal and I loved it.

              JMO...but you can never go wrong with a gun. Graduation, birthday, Christmas, or Arbor day. I'm actually trying to get the whole engagement gun thing started. I buy her a ring...she buys me a gun.

              Seriously though, most cops I know would prefer something functional. Gloves, lights, cuffs...

                I would suggest a Back Defender. I really wished somebody had gotten me one because it has really eased the pain on hips and lower back.

                  Just an old cops opinion but functional is best. He's just starting the job and needs alota tools, plaques can be made as a stress relief. A gun, cuffs, extra mags, speedloaders,..... tools of the trade.

                      I was treated to a trip to a local butt naked bar. That was a few years ago. Probably not PC now. lol.

                        My dad gave me his academy pin from 1976 since they don't give them out anymore here. The chief said I can't wear it on my uniform so I wear it on my left vest strap, out of sight. Still go nowhere without it.

                          A gift certificate from a LEO / PO equipment / uniform supply place is good.

                          Things you could buy:
                          - handcuffs;
                          - flashlight (Olight M20 or M30, Fenix TK11 or TK40, Streamlight Strion LED);
                          - cut-resistant gloves;
                          - box of surgical gloves (if his Dept does not supply same);
                          - folding multi-tool or multi-blade knife;
                          - clipboard (longer-than-legal-form, plain hardboard - inexpensive and won't hurt when it gets run over, yet good for kids to give);
                          - pocket bottle with large refill bottle of hand-sanitizer (unless the Dept supplies him, again inexpensive for kids to give or combine with other gifts);
                          - sunglasses (preferrably ballistic and polarized);
                          - notebooks and / or covers;
                          - refillable pen and refills (unless Dept supplies same);
                          - duty bag or organizer.

                              I would suggest a Galls gift certificate or something like that, if you dont do gift certificates maybe a car seat organizer, definately something functional.

                              My dad gave me for graduatuion a Beretta M92, I will never part with that gun.
