Toledo Metroparks rangers were recently announced as winners of the Best Dressed Small Law Enforcement Agency (for a department under 100 officers) by the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD). The Metroparks rangers, outfitted by Superior Uniform Sales, wear a variety of uniform items, primarily black pants and olive green Armorskin vest carriers made of a polyester/cotton rip-stop material. “Looking like the official law enforcement officers that they are, while having the utility to patrol the parks on foot, bicycles, or in vehicles is important to our ranger staff,” said Joe Fausnaugh, chief of operations for Metroparks of the Toledo Area. “In the park district, we pride ourselves on providing clean, safe, natural parks, with great customer service from our staff. That includes looking our best.” Now they have the award to prove it.
