As a police officer, you spend countless hours in your cruiser patrolling neighborhoods, cities, and rural communities. Spending that much time on duty means you’re likely to encounter a wide variety of situations over your career, so it’s important that you carry a police duty bag with you that has the necessary supplies, tools, equipment and personal items that you may need.
With the hotter months upon us, it’s a good bet that you’re in search of ways to keep cooler on the job. That could include anything from trying to talk your superior into short-sleeve polos to wearing a cooling, dry-fit base layer under your uniform.
For those of you who wear tactical pants daily, you’re in luck, as many are now considered lightweight, thus helping you stay cooler in the warmer months, as well as feel lighter and less weighed down, especially when wearing a duty belt with your various tools and equipment – sidearm, flashlight, cuffs, binoculars, etc.
