  • Uniform or Plain clothes?

    I am sure it has been asked before. But just want to know what you guys prefer, because those uniforms must get old real quick.

    I've worked uniform patrol my entire 21+ years on the job. I worked very hard to earn the right to wear this uniform and I'm very proud of it. Patrol is where the action is.
    When Society makes war on its police, it better be prepared to make friends of its criminals.

          Both have their pros & cons. My career has been spent in equal amounts for both.

          Plainclothes is nice because you can run errands on the way to & from work, something you really don't want to make a habit of in uniform. There is really 2 types of plainclothes....UC palinclothes and coat & tie palinclothes. Being "low-profile" on duty also has many advantages.

          Uniforms are nice because you never have to worry about what you're going to wear, and there's no doubt about who you are when you're taking police action. You also can eat half-price .

            Gald darn fashion police. Look like they come out of a page in a magazine some where. More worried about their cotton pickin' hair than what the business at hand is.


            Naw spent more than ten years in investigations. (dress casual, nice jeans on Fridays) Now I'm back where I belong. In a uniform. I'm the police and there ain't no mistaking it.

              Love wearing the uniform, mainly because when you have to wear a tie, it's always a clip on. I like the simple stuff

                Just started plain clothes, having done little stints previously. I never thought I'd miss Intervention (Patrol) but I do.

                  My experience has been exactly the opposite. As a Federal Investigator, the closest I ever got to a uniform was my flight suit. I still feel odd if I wear a gun openly!

                    I don't know anything but wearing a uniform.

                    The nice thing about it is I didn't pay for it. If I rip it up, its not a big deal, the department quartermaster will give me a new one. I don't have ever worry if I will color coordinate when I get dressed.

                    It is hot in the summer though. Polyster just doesn't breathe at all. It doesn't behave well around flames either.

                      Worked CID for almost 9 years and wore shirt, tie, and jacket. Went back to patrol, dry cleaning bills went way down since the agency pays for uniform dry cleaning, but not plain clothes. I like uniform better, hot as all get out in the summer, but its easy to decide what to wear in the morning!

                        A nice plain cloths anti-crime detail is great. Patrol in unmarked cars in jeans and a t-shirt and look for guys with guns and other serious felonies in progress. What beats that?
