NLCRPD officers wear a distinctive daily uniform in the day to day operations of the department. The uniform has specific regular care recommendations to assure appearance standards and extension of the life of the uniform. Some of these include a dry-cleaning requirement. As a result of Governor Wolf’s recent mandate on business closures and restrictions; it is expected that all dry-cleaning and uniform tailoring services will be closed until further notice. As a part of the planning process associated with the COVID-19 response the NLCRPD anticipated the potential for such an action and prepared for the need for an alternative uniform to meet agency needs during this period. An advantage to this uniform is the ability to frequently launder, sanitize, and self-care for the uniform. Another advantage is the uniform will be used for future training, special circumstance, search and rescue, crime scene and other future NLCRPD needs.
