L.A. Sheriff’s Dept. To Bling Up Uniforms To ‘Exude Command Presence’

But McDonnell is unmoved, defending the uniform change and noting how important it is for the deputies to “exude command presence.”

“The first impression somebody gets of one of our deputies in the field is what they look like when they approach. Are they squared-away looking? Do they have their gear in place? Are they physically fit? Am I gonna run? Am I gonna fight? What am I gonna do?” McDonnell said.

In its inaugural issue of “Inside the LASD,” the department’s newsletter, a full-page article is devoted to the transition from chrome to solid brass snaps and buckles by June 30, 2017.

A consistent uniform appearance is part of the tactical package
