The typical nighttime working condition for police officers is either no or low light environments, which can be a nightmare for both drivers and officers. Older drivers are known to react more slowly to oncoming warning light and signs. High visibility retroreflective clothing, vests and outerwear can provide adequate warning to drivers when worn by officers during their shifts in daytime by appearing highly visible, and at night by returning light from the source (headlights) back to the driver. The ability of fabrics to return light to the source is measured in candelas, or units of light. Scotchlite by 3M and Reflexite by Orafol are two if the best performing retro reflective materials and both are used on Blauer hi vis safety clothing.
Blauer's line of retro reflective clothing has expanded to include, outerwear, rainwear, vests, shirts, hats, armbands, and gloves. FHWA now requires all people working public or private roadways to be equipped at minimum with an ANSI 107 Class 2 or ANSI 207 vest. OSHA has been aggressively fining public and private employers for non-compliance. Police officers not making routine traffic stops must wear high visibility clothing. By making attractive polo shirts, vests and outerwear options we are maintain the image of law officers and also keeping them visible.
