Legend has it that Adolph Hitler liked the MSP uniform too and it inspired the SS uniforms of that period.Irishlacop";p="70275 said:I have two top uniforms...Of course I have to say that LAPD has the best uniforms, simple, clean and very traditional. We are the reason every one else has dark blue uniforms. The second is the Mass State Police (Winter Season) uniform. I have always like those since I was a kid.
Man, I was thinking "Damn he looks like one fine Trooper".. but he's GOT to be a whacker... RISP carrys 229 DAK's, not 1911's!!!!!!!!!HousingCop";p="70273 said:I wholeheartedly agree. I like the brown 3/4 length leather coats with the cross draw action. They still have those??
A lot of police officers think that. Our mall security guys here look more like admirals and traditionally uniformed police officers. Our uniforms look a bit more like a tactical uniform. People either like them or don't. I know when we started wearing them guys got out of their cars and did more and a lot of regular people felt less intimidated. It's a lot easier to help someone change a tire, climb up on a roof, wrestle someone or quietly and stealthily walk through the woods with this type of uniform.Irishlacop";p="70297 said:I have to say that uniforms that have a polo shirt and a baseball hat, look unprofessional. Too much like mall security. Just my personal opinion.
The MSP chose their uniforms in 1921 (forest green) and switched to the French and Electric Blue in 1933.Barbrady";p="70347 said:I like MSP #1. I heard opposite about the Nazi SS thing. I understood the MSP modeled their uniforms after Hitlers to have the intimidation thing going for them.
