NAUMD BEST DRESSED
PUBLIC SAFETY AWARDS
Best Dressed Law Enforcement – 100-500 Officeres
PROGRAM: Montana Highway Patrol
Montana has extreme weather conditions, ranging from very cold winters, hot summers, and everything in between. The Spiewak uniform program provides options that meets the demands of these various weather conditions while maintaining a consistent and professional appearance. There are multiple options available to all troopers, with the Class A uniform being the foundation of the program. A Class B mimics the appearance of the Class A but includes additional features for comfort and performance. Examples include trousers with hidden internal cargo pockets for added functionality, a long sleeve shirt made from a lighter fabric, and a short sleeve version that incorporates mesh sides for greater comfort and range of motion.
Montana Highway Patrol Troopers do not have easy access to professional cleaning facilities. As such the program includes easy home laundry options that do not compromise quality or appearance.
Best Dressed Law Enforcment – Under 100 Officers
PROGRAM: Naugatuck Polics Department
It took time to create this award-winning look. Yocha Dehe Fire Department consulted with other departments, researched fabric options and consulted with suppliers for over a year before reaching a decision which they believe strikes a perfect balance between appearance and functionality.
There are 9 types of uniform in use. The everyday Class B consists of a black collared dress shirt with pockets and applets; black dress trouser pants (both in Nomex material for fire resistance); a cotton black t-shirt, and a black custom hat. There is a custom badge that is placed on the uniform, with custom patches on both sleeves. Honor Guard uniforms incorporate blended breathable fabrics designed for comfort and durability. Badges, custom bright belts with custom belt buckles, shoulder chords and nameplates complete the look. Uniform garments are colored in black, a shade that has added significance as it signifies power, pride and professionalism, all important elements to this tribal department and the community it serves.
