Public Safety Dispatcher Uniforms
There is no standard for public safety dispatcher uniforms--some agencies require uniforms even if the dispatcher has no public contact, and other allow any type of appropriate casual wear. Some agencies provide the uniforms under a quartermaster system, while others pay an periodic uniform allowance. As for the uniforms, they can be a formal, pleated shirt and dress pants, or as casual as a polo shirt and brand-name khaki pants. If a formal uniform is specified, it usually calls for a badge and patch. When a polo shirt is worn, it usually has an embroidered patch.
