This thread was inspired by another thread involving the rescue of a Washington State Trooper, the damn bow tie they wear got me thinking. Which state has the best uniforms?

I like TN's. The color-coding on their cruisers (brown and tan) is cool. Uniforms are tan and green. Looks sharp.



As a side note, NJ's look like fucking Gestapo!

The purple ties are odd but the NY State Police have professional uniforms and the hats are awesome.

I'm going to agree with Aimless about the hats. A "State Trooper" has to have a Smokey Bear hat or something similar.

I happen to like the purple ties of the NYSP, very distinctive, and gave rise to the their nickname of "The Purple."

The purple is actually to signify that they are considered an "elite unit" within state's law enforcement community, of course one can debate the appropriateness of that, similar to the noted color markings of the Praetorian Guard in Ancient Rome from which it was inspired. Purple is the color of Valor.

The campaign hats and the big black riding boots really do it.

They need to get some tan ones and some Mercedes G Wagens for the summer.

Was modeled after the German Heer of WWI. So yes, they do look like they are ready to invade Poland. Along with the Mass State PD.... they did invade Poland.

I've seen some other state police agencies in my travels and on TV, but I think most of us would be most familiar with our own state or neighboring states.
