The North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD) announced the six winners of its Best Dressed Public Safety Awards program. Developed to recognize the vital role uniforms play in law enforcement and public safety, the awards honor both the departments and suppliers of the uniform program.
 
“The presence of well-uniformed law enforcement professionals in the community reduces anxiety and allows the general public feel safe and secure,” said Richard J. Lerman, President and CEO of the NAUMD. 
 
“A professionally created public safety uniform program consists of a well-designed set of garments and accessories that improves both the image and overall comfort of those who proudly wear them. New technologies, fabric enhancements and innovation in design and composition are keys to being judged the best of the best.”
 
Winners were selected by a panel of independent judges composed of industry and apparel experts, and will be recognized this evening during the NAUMD Awards Dinner in Las Vegas as part of the NAUMD’s 2014 “Winning Strategic Alliances” Convention & Exposition at Bally’s Las Vegas.
 
Winners of the 2014 NAUMD Best Dressed Public Safety Awards include:
Departments Over 3,000 Officers:
-Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department by Fechheimer Bros.Co.
 
Departments Over 2,000 Officers:
-Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) by Roy Tailors Uniform Co./Galls, LLC. OSHP has 2,000 uniformed professionals, including 1,600 troopers, 40 police officers and 500 others in service.

Departments Over 300 Officers:
-Hartford Police Department by Fechheimer Bros.Co.
-State Agency:Florida Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement by Galls, LLC
-Sheriff’s Office:Anderson County Sheriff’s Office by Fechheimer Bros. Co.
 
Now in its 37th year, the NAUMD Best Dressed Public Safety Awards is open to all 118 NAUMD member distributors, 267 manufacturers and public safety departments across North America. Participants must submit a completed entry form, as well as photographs depicting every uniform worn in their department’s program. 
 
The independent panel of judges includes professionals in media, education and police chiefs. The judges review each department’s professional appearance and uniform innovation, paying close attention to detail and the diverse needs and challenges the department faces in the community or area they protect.
 
This competition emphasizes the high value of professional, neat, well-fitted and immediately identifiable uniforms in the vitally important role of public safety and law enforcement. The award showcases the dedication of the industry’s uniform professionals to designing and manufacturing the most comfortable, safe and versatile set of apparel possible required to meet the exacting standards of today’s law enforcement professionals.
 
“A department’s public safety uniform program directly affects how well law enforcement officials are able to be immediately recognized in their role in all situations and allows them to comfortably and safely perform their duties,” said Steve Robinson, Liberty Uniform Mfg. Co., Inc. who served as NAUMD Chair from 2012-14. “We’d like to extend our congratulations to all the developers and wearers of this year’s awards.”
