Whether you are working in the soupy, humid mug of Alabama or the burning, boiling hot sun of Nevada, working in law enforcement in the summer is extra challenging. As if your job wasn't difficult enough, the summer months don't make it any easier.
We have 4 tips for law enforcement for surviving a long, hot summer.
Tip #1: STAY HYDRATED
It is easy to get caught up in your work and responsibilities, but staying hydrated all day will help improve your brain function and fatigue during the summer. We suggest investing in an insulated or reusable water bottle. Ensure you are filling it up with ice and bringing it with you for every shift, morning or night. Keep an insulated water bottle in your patrol car so you can sip on cool water throughout your shift.
Tip #2: SPRAY EVERY DAY
After every single shift, spray your vest with Arrest My Vest. This way you will start each shift smelling great and off to a good start. Don't be afraid to respray mid-day if the summer heat is a little extra hot from time to time. No one wants to work smelling like sh*t.
Tip #3: DON'T FORGET YOUR BOOTS
Sometimes we are so caught up in the rancid smell from our vests that we forget to spray our work boots. The same rules apply here from tip #2, spray your boot after each shift on a hot summer day. It'll help with the longevity of keeping your boots and keep your partner from giving you that look. You know, the look that says, "Is that smell coming from your boots or mine?"
