Police Uniform Shirts & Tactical Uniform Shirts
With the advancement in fabric and performance features law enforcement and security uniforms have evolved to allow officers to be more protected, comfortable and prepared. With the improvement in technology, current uniform shirts offer permanent collar stays, fade-resistant material and the ability for each shirt to be customized for the different agencies and ranks.
With the demanding duties that police face daily, having a durable, fade and wrinkle-resistant uniform shirt is extremely important. Galls has partnered with the industry’s top brands to bring public safety personnel over 650 different styles of uniform shirts.
When shopping for your next uniform shirt, you must consider what classification of shirt is approved. There are three classifications of police, military and public service uniforms: Class A, Class B and Class C.
- Class A police uniforms are often referred to as the “dress uniform” for law enforcement officers. The Class A uniform is reserved for ceremonies, receptions, funerals, and other special occasions, not for everyday wear.
- Class B uniforms, sometimes referred to as a duty or operational uniform, feature a more casual style with a relaxed fit. Class B uniforms are built for rough and tumble police activities and for street duty wear. Class B uniforms maintain a tailored look but include some tactical features. Class B accessory-type items may include body armor, duty belts, tactical gear, and other headwear.
- Tactical, BDU uniforms are frequently classified as a Class C style. Class C uniforms offer a less tailored appearance, with a heavy focus on comfort and durability for more intense tactical situations. Class C uniforms are used by SWAT teams, K9 units, and other special operations teams that need a uniform with attention to mobility and comfort.
Types of Uniform Shirts
Approved uniform shirts will vary depending on the assignment, branch and job responsibilities. Three basic uniform shirt styles are the long sleeve shirt, performance polo and the short-sleeve shirt. Each style of shirt has its design variations, but there are standard features that both the long and short sleeve shirt have including, military-style creases, button-down epaulets and permanent collar stays.
The Lawpro 100% Polyester Short Sleeve Shirt and the Poly Cotton Long Sleeve Premium Shirt are two of the most popular tactical uniform shirts. These stain and wrinkle-resistant shirts have a lined neck and yolk with moisture-wicking for superior comfort. Not only are these moisture-wicking polos highly rated, they come in more than 6 colors and range in size XXS to 6X, a perfect addition to your wardrobe.
When a less formal uniform shirt is required, the Propper I.C.E. Performance Polo Shirt is a top-choice. It offers a lightweight moisture-wicking material that keeps you cool in hot temperatures. This snag-resistant fabric is designed with a pen pocket on the shoulder, mic tabs along the placket and built-in collar stays.
