A Tip of the Hat
Starting August 1st, you may notice our officers with two new tools to protect their health…western hats and boonie hats. Standing out in the hot sun is not only uncomfortable, but it also places you at risk of heat exposure and sun damage. We are always looking at ways to protect our officers and being outdoors is definitely a work-related requirement for some of our officers each day. Fortunately, Fort Worth’s rich western heritage provides us the advantage of wearing a western hat, a perfect way to protect the face, ears and neck from the sun and a great way to stay cooler.

We hope by seeing our officers wearing a hat while in the sun that you will be reminded to also protect yourself and loved ones.
