I really like the new uniforms! I think it makes the Deputies look more like police officers than members of a Sheriff's Department.

I always wondered why law enforcement have to wear those black "dress shoes"...? Certainly, they must be difficult to manage while running, or even on wet floors.

KUDOS to Sheriff Gentry and his Command Staff for obtaining the new uniforms for the staff -- the purchase truely refelcts the hard work of the Department since the uniforms were paid for by confiscated items! What a great use of siezed goods, and what a great 'reward' for the staff!

Nice Job, Guys!

That is the real benefit, that the uniforms were paid by money's from confiscated items and not funded by the taxpayers during these very tough economic times.

You just get stupider and stupider. Why don't you go back and look at how that 'discretionary' money has been spent in the past. It all comes FROM and goes TO the same place. Saying the uniforms came from the confiscated monies/property is just a way of making it look politically correct. The money would have been spent on something else we desperately need anyway. You got the wool over your eyes, idiot.

I know how it is spent, bill. No need to get nasty, just because you feel you have to spam up this thread. Not all confiscated monies/property goes to the sheriff's department. Some goes to the state. But it still is used for the sheriff's department to offset their expenses in lieu of tax dollars, whether it's state or local. So what's wrong with using it?

Once again, you attack without explaination. Gawd, you really are so focused on disrupting these threads you don't make any sense.

Dark Blue. Watch channel 48, Cox Cable for the presentation, you can get all the details from Gentry there during the last BOS meeting. There are other qualities, including, according to Gentry, breathability, washability (no dry cleaning), better fit, etc.....

Just keep me safe everyone...when you see them parked on the side of the road with a radar trap, remember to flash your lights to warm everyone. I drive drunk and on bi-polar meds and don't want to get caught...again.

Yes, please tune in...it's an exciting moment in Gloucester History. Channel 48 is my favorite. But then again, I have no life but my obsession with the BOS and post meaningless commits Topix all day.

Sorry, my shrink up the dosage of my meds and although I'm not supposed to drink, I can't help it. My only friend, the Dominos Pizza Delivery guy quit so I'm a bit bummed.

I have no idea what you are citing as the basis of your comment. And, I wouldn't know about being pulled over and having anyone write me a ticket, so I will concede to YOU on that point since you obviously have the experience.
The Facts

The fact of the matter is the Sheriff has mislead the public, once again. The uniforms cost approx.$92,000 of assett money, which is money seized from drug operations. The current uniforms were not is a bad condition as he indicated and the money could of subplanted the budget in other ways, other than leaving his state police mark on the county. He said the old uniforms were dry clean only, which is NOT correct, and the NEW uniforms are NOT dry clean only, which they are. He only said that because the salesman told him they could be washed and to ignore the huge dry clean only tag on the inside of the uniforms.

Doesn't really matter, the public hasn't had time to see the real Sheriff yet. They will, his colors aare slowly coming out. From his misleading the public, to the favortism he shows to the female officers at his office, to the micro managing of his staff. As long as you wear your hat and look good in the uniform you will go far with him.

Either way.....whatever
