Best Dressed Over 200 Officers (County)
Montgomery County, TX Sheriff's Office
Located adjacent and north of Houston, Montgomery County is the fourth fastest-growing county in Texas and the 36th fastest in the nation. The demands on the 287-member department are many, and uniforms play a vital role in meeting these day-to-day challenges. To ensure that the uniform design created by Sheriff Gage received the attention to detail they were seeking, Montgomery County turned to Miller Uniforms. "Our contract calls for us to custom fit this program, and this helps ensure a fine look for every deputy," Bob Miller said. "They also demand quality, and for this, we turned to Blauer, who manufactures a premium product."
"We utilize a number of different uniforms here for a variety of duties, so it's important to have a uniform that is comfortable and functional," Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel added.
Garmets are bought by the department, and additional items are kept on hand to ensure a speedy replacement process if needed. Inspections are held daily, and public feedback is vigorously encouraged.
The department's basic look consists of a navy trouser that is striped with tan. Shirts are tan and feature navy blue epaulets with red piping. Neon yellow rainwear provides the high visibility needed during inclement weather. A blue campaign hat finishes the program.
