Sedgwick County Deputies Test New Uniforms

     WICHTIA, Kan.  -  Around a dozen Sedgwick County deputies are testing a new uniform that consists of a dark polo shirt and khaki pants.  "It's very comfortable. We're used to polyester, the stiffer uniforms," said Deputy Erin Wannow. "Going out on a call, being on an accident scene, it's a lot more comfortable."
     The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office is conducting a three-month trial of these uniforms. They are looking at this outfit as the primary uniform for the detention facility and as a seasonal uniform for those out on patrol.
     The trial phase will follow a cost analysis.  One possibility is for deputies to purchase the seasonal uniforms.  The Sheriff's Office will make a decision by the end of the year.
