The Washington State Patrol and the Mississippi Highway Patrol have been named the best dressed law enforcement agencies in the U.S. by the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD). This marks the first year the association has named co-winners of the annual Best Dressed Law Enforcement Agency award.
Last year, the State Patrol was the sole winner of the award.
“I am very proud of the men and women who wear the uniform of the Washington State Patrol,” said State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste in a news release. “I have seen the uniform of the Mississippi Highway Patrol, and am honored to be in their company.”
The award is based on photographs, history and explanation of each of the different
working uniforms worn by law enforcement agencies.
State Patrol uniforms include traditional blues with campaign hat and bowtie; light blue shirt and navy blue trousers of the communications officer; gray shirt and black trousers of the Commercial Vehicle Division; and bicycle uniform worn by Capitol Campus Security.
