My brother-in-law is a cop. I'm tasked with getting him a christmas present. 30-50$ He works traffic as a supervisor. I want to get him something functional and useful for work.

How about a back-up light such as a Surefire or other such brand. They are useful and some can be had in the $50.00 range. Go to www.candlepowerforum.com

If he works in a cold climate, Under Armour is great!


Regards,
Gary

Hmmmm, Traffic Supervisor . . .

Warm, waterproof gloves/socks
waterproof clipboard for forms
good light (as mentioned above)
car organizer

just some ideas

try to get him something that he will use and appreciate, but not neccesarily something he would buy for himself.

I like the flashlight idea, a nice Gerber or Leatherman multitool is always handy also.

flashlight is a good idea. Under armor is always good for cold or hot if you buy the different brands. Car organizer is another great idea, b/c it can get pretty cluttered in their towards the end of a shift.
