Why the 'Soft' Uniform Is Dangerous

Why the 'Soft' Uniform Is Dangerous

This past week, President Obama discussed the idea that law enforcement should wear “softer looking” uniforms. While there were plenty of jokes about the comment, we need to understand that the President didn’t just throw that out there for discussion.

Way to go Officer Younts, Sergeant Freis, Officer Christenson and TMPA Field Rep Tony Rike!!!

Words from one of our own on our experience attending Deputy Goforth's funeral. It was an honor to attend. R.I.P Deputy Darren Goforth! We'll take it from here.

This is long, forgive me. Feel free to share, I write better than I talk.

It was still dark outside, the warmth of the dying summer season still present in the early morning air. The pack on my shoulder heavy, bearing the tools that I will need this day. The street and porch lights reflect off the toe of my boots, fresh from being polished only a few hours prior. I stand for only a short time in the predawn silence before a black sedan pulls along the curb in front of my home. My chariot for the day. I load up, call "shotgun", and pile into the car for the journey to come. This day I am going to travel from one corner to the other of the second largest state in our great nation, but I'm not alone. Today I ride with two of my brothers. Brothers not by blood or any form of affinity, but fraternal brothers. I look back at my home, as I do everyday that I leave my family to be with my fraternal family, to make sure the front door is closed and the porch light is on as we drive away. Today is different, today I linger looking at the house as we pass. Today is different because we are going to bury another one of our brothers.

We have never met this brother, but a brother he was. You see, in this profession the saying "misery loves company" might be the closest description to rationalize this fraternal family. We see so much pain and misery, sadness and tragedy, that few outside of us could ever understand. We have to trust each other, we have to care for one another, and if need be sacrifice our lives for each other. We love each other, even if we have never met. If one of us needs help the others would ride through hell to get to that one.

The ride was as usual when family gets together, news and stories. There is of course a ubiquitous pit stop at a convenience store. Talking and joking while driving we are soon joined by other brothers and sisters. Before us two vehicles and behind at least thirty and growing. Brothers and sisters from various parts of our state, never having met but on the same journey. We continue on our way, ever nearing our destination.

The alert on my phone sounds, "in one quarter of a mile, your destination will be on your right". Nearly there, the line of our family's vehicles is now well over a mile long. The roadside tells me we are close as blue ribbons are tied to every fence, they flutter in the breeze as if they are pointing the way. I look to my right and can see what we are looking for, the top of Second Baptist Church. We find the nearest place to park, a quarter mile away. There on the side of a residential street in an affluent neighborhood in Houston, Texas, we ready ourselves. I empty my pack of my duty belt, we don our dress blues and our duty rigs. The next few minutes we check each other to make sure we look as professional as possible. We stand for a moment, badges and medals glinting in the midday sun, before we start the walk. Approaching the church we find our sister that made the trip before us. There is a sea of blue, white, brown, and green, we are surrounded by our fraternal family. We number in the thousands. We file into the sanctuary I, my two brothers and our sister, find a place to stand in the back. We are approached several times and informed of overflow seating available, which we kindly refuse. My sentiment is, I'm sure, shared by others, "my fallen brother is worth standing for".

The front of the sanctuary is bathed in a blue light, however there are two things that immediately draws the eye. The first is the casket bearing our brother. It is draped with the flag of our nation, to me a symbol that the nation lost one of her guardians and that the flag itself is mourning this loss. Two of my brothers flank the casket, standing guard over our fallen. The second thing that draws your eye is a large stained glass window scene. The sun is providing the backlight for the window, which depicts a heavenly scene over a lake of fire, the same lake of fire that I and my brothers and sisters walk through everyday to safeguard our nation and provide a veil of security to our nation's people. The service is intermingled with kind words, stories, and some of the most beautiful singing that I have ever heard. We were honored to hear about the life our brother lived, how he loved this profession, and how he loved his family. Our brother was truly a great man. The preacher provided a sermon on the role that our profession plays in God's plan. The bagpipes, the bagpipes always seem to get my utter attention. Unlike most instruments it seems that you not only hear the bagpipes but you also feel them in your heart. The sermon concluded, we file outside for formation. There in the typical hot and humid afternoon Houston sun we stand in the largest formation I have ever seen. Thousands of us stand shoulder to shoulder at either attention or presenting a salute before our brother takes his last ride. The helicopter formation flying overhead in the missing man formation. In the corner of my eye I see the lone helicopter, it's rotor beats like a heart fading into the distance. The folding of the flag, the twenty one gun salute, and the playing of taps. Finally the motorcade starts off and our brother is driven away being led by other brothers, for he will not take this ride alone.

My brothers' and our sister's purpose here is done and we part ways. The ride home is much more somber, reflecting on more serious things. We get back to my home, similar to how I left it. We say our parting words and go our separate ways, all with the same thoughts. We are glad to have taken the journey. There were good moments, there were sad moments, but we went. Our journey showed that we stand for a belief, a purpose, that is bigger than us all. Since I became a Police Officer in 2006 I have lost one thousand four hundred and ninety one brothers and sisters. When one of us falls there will be others to take up our post and to carry us home.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

Your opinion matters!

The Duncanville Police Department would like feedback regarding the testing a new patrol uniform for daily wear. Attached are our existing uniform and the new proposed uniform. The average weight of duty belts currently worn by officers is 10-15 lbs. This places a heavy strain on the officers lower back when worn over time. Furthermore, there have been many documented articles pertaining to prolonged back problems in conjunction with wearing Sam Browne duty belts.
The new uniform is an outer vest carrier that will allow the officers to attach all their equipment, other than their firearm, to the front. The outer vest carrier uses the officer’s current panels so the carrier provides the same coverage and protection as the concealed vest. In addition to the outer vest carrier, the patrol shirt and pants are different. The shirt is a moisture wicking polo that allows more ventilation while still exhibiting a professional look. The pants are a durable ripstop cotton blend material that provides 70% more breathability. We all know living in Texas the heat we endure over the summer months is physically draining while working outdoors. There are times when we are directing traffic or working an incident outdoors for several hours. This uniform will allow the officer to remove the outer vest while working in the station or taking a break to cool off and rejuvenate themselves so that they can continue to provide quality police service. Please take a moment and leave your comments below. Thank you for your time and stay safe!

***National Police Week***

Wednesday Sgt. Boatman and Lt. Reiss were able to join officers, surviving family members, and police supporters from around the nation at the candlelight vigil held at the Law Enforcement Memorial. We wanted to share just a few photos of the memorial wall and the vigil.

As a quick reminder Friday is Peace Officers Memorial Day, under Proclamation from the President of the United States the flag should be flown at half mast from sunrise to sunset on Friday, May 15th in honor of all officers who have given their life in service to their communities.

***Honoring the Fallen***

Day One:
The day started at 7:00am as a 110 mile ride. Scheduled to leave Chesapeake at 8, our riders were excited to break the century mark during the ride today. At the second water break of the day the local PD had the riders join them in honoring one of their fallen at a quick memorial. There was a stop in Newport News, VA and then a trip over the James River bridge. After a heavy downpour from Tropical Storm Anna the water break at James City County turned into the stopping point for the day as a second stronger storm grounded the riders about 30 miles short of their original goal. The guys are gonna have to wait till tomorrow to ride that 100.

***Honoring the Fallen***

As part of National Police Week Sgt. Boatman and Lt. Reiss are participating in the Law Enforcement United Memorial Bike ride. Over the next three days they will ride over 240 miles from Chesapeake, Virginia to Washington D.C. Each rider wears a metal bracelet engraved with the name of the fallen officer that they are honoring on their ride. This year Sgt. Boatman is honoring Officer Roger Charles Hobden and Lt. Reiss is riding in memory of Sgt. Michael Poe. Both officers served with the Duncanville Police Department and were killed on December 3, 1979.

We will follow Sgt. Boatman and Lt. Reiss on their ride. Tomorrow they start out with a 110 mile ride. Show your support for these riders and the officers they are honoring with a huge LIKE!!!
