Uniform Order

Post by Lay19 »

Hi guys

Had an email today from cooneen to order my uniform. I was surprised that there was no entitlement to order a fleece/jacket

Was this the same for anyone else?

And just to confirm female officers don’t need to wear a tie right?

What do they expect you to wear? I’ve got the coldest blood of any human being haha. I’m a scaffolder now and still wear all my thermals, fleece, jumper, coat, two pairs of socks :slhehe:

Can still order it just needs to be authorised, it is a bit weird that it's not on your entitlement. I do know there was a supply issue on the jackets and costs.

Lol sounds like you requested everything

I’ve emailed the approver to check but I might just order it anyway, if I can’t have it they will just decline it

I’m sure I’ve read on another post that they had moved to this system for uniform ordering

They got back to me and told me to put it through anyways and they will get it approved

No cold arms for me

Ooooo reading these posts. I lucked out with my uniform. I got hats, gloves, fleece, gortex coat! The lot.

I want to know really whether viper belts are worth it? Or just to get a couple of pouches for my leather belt.
