At Keltic, as one of the UK’s leading uniform clothing suppliers, we’re more keen than most for people to look really smart, and to wear the correct uniform for their job role, as well as to feel comfortable and special in their uniform clothes.
The San Francisco Examiner recently reported on an interesting situation that related to this. A “Patrol Special” police officer was recently sacked for wearing the incorrect uniform wear. The officer, who had been nominated for a medal for disarming a gunman during a fatal shootout, had failed to wear his navy jacket and trousers, which had a distinctive blue stripe down the side, on 37 occasions during 2009 and 2010.
However, the article also reports that he also failed to show up to various training courses, amongst other issues. So as with many of these seemingly straightforward stories, there’s more than the headline implies. However, there’s food for thought here. Would you take a chance and not wear your uniform if you knew your job was on the line?
