  • Neckties and safety issues

    As I was driving in my car today a thought occured to me. Winter's coming up soon and many police forces will be requiring their officers to go back to long sleeve shirts complete with neckties. Aren't neckties somewhat of a safety issue in the event that you get into a scuffle with someone and they grab your tie and start choking you to death, or do your departments have you wearing clip-on ties that can rip off easily if grabbed?

    I have only seen the clip-ons being issued but have seen velcro ones. I'd stick with the clips.

      Next time a cop stops you, grab one and see!

        We wear long sleeves and ties year round. Ours are clip on, and can easily be removed if someone tried to grab it. I have seen the velcro ones too.

              They have some pretty convincing looking clip-ons then. I guess they're not like the cheapies you buy at Wal-Mart.

                Fortunately.. for those of us who hate the ties, my department allows us to wear a mock turtleneck. Dont have to button up the shirt all the way and wear that tie, bit more comfortable too.

                  Yeah, ties are uncomfortable. I used to work in a grocery store that required us to wear ties. At least now I know how to tie a tie in the event that I marry a guy who doesn't. (It's possible. Neither my dad nor my brother can a tie a tie.)
