  • Gordon Graham on the importance of the uniform

    Lexipol | Today’s Tip from Lexipol | Risk Management Tips | Public Safety Tips

    I saw this video from Gordon Graham today on the importance taking pride in your uniform appearance- pretty much summed up my thoughts exactly. I can't stand how sloppy so many officers look these days. I get the fact that shiny boots aren't the most important thing in life, but I really believe in the psychological impact of the uniform.

    On a side note, I saw Graham speak about risk analysis/assessment at a conference about 10 years ago- without a doubt the best presentation I've ever seen!
    1. Serve the public trust
    2. Protect the innocent
    3. Uphold the law

    Gordon was just in Denver last week. I knew him when he was just a CHP motor guy in the early 80's.

    He cracked me, and the rest of the audience up. All his presentations are good and worth any effort to attend.
    "You're never fully dressed without a smile."

    Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

      If you "look sharp and on point" jokers will think twice about trying you. Dont agree? Just read some of the FBI's profiles on some of these subjects who assault officers and WHY they did it.

        That was pretty much the message of the FBI LEOKA* seminar I attended last fall.

        *(law enforcement officers killed and assaulted)
