GALLS, LLC®, the nation’s leading supplier serving America’s public safety and military professionals, proudly announces its outstanding achievement at the NAUMD 2024 Convention & Exposition taking home five awards for Best Dressed Public Safety Department®. The convention, held in Daytona Beach, Florida, from May 5 – 7, 2024, is dedicated to creating a robust network of uniform, image apparel, and workwear companies to enhance supply chains, spur innovation, and increase industry awareness.

NAUMD, committed to fostering innovation and recognizing exceptional uniform programs, bestowed the prestigious Best Dressed Public Safety Department Award upon five departments outfitted by GALLS. Each award-winning program exemplifies GALLS’ dedication to providing tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of diverse public safety agencies. Independent judges meticulously evaluated submissions for the 2024 Awards based on appearance, functionality for the job, utilization of technology and innovation, and adherence to uniform standards.

Mike Fadden, CEO of GALLS, commented, “These awards are a testament to our commitment to excellence and dedication to serving those who serve our communities. At GALLS, we’re not just about selling uniforms – we’re about empowering those who wear them. This recognition only fuels our passion to continue providing top-notch service and products to the incredible men and women in public safety.”

Here are the five distinguished departments honored for their outstanding uniform programs:

Winner: Emergency Services

Program: Miami Dade Fire Rescue

An improved appearance and better comfort drove the creation of this program coordinated by Galls. The Miami Dade Fire Rescue has over 2800 sworn personnel that respond to over 280,000 calls annually. The updated stationwear uniforms include Next Level T-shirts in both long and short-sleeved options; 5.11 pants, and Elbeco job shirts. The department selected a full zip shirt which allows members the ability to easily remove without the worry of contamination.

Winner: Police Department

Program: Port Authority Postal Police

The Port Authority Police Department is one of the most unique agencies in America. They have authority and jurisdiction that no other agency possesses. They are also a self-funded agency, generating revenue from the valuable assets that they own and protect. This agency outfits over 2,000 officers and protects some of the most visible and high-value areas in the country. Their image projects professionalism and their look is classic.

Winner: Highway Patrol

Program: Virginia State Police

The team of Spiewak and Galls is behind this winning program that had its goal of comfortable outfits that didn’t compromise the standards of this storied department. For over 25 years, Virginia State Police had been wearing a 55/45 poly/wool uniform. Their new look incorporates a poly/wool stretch fabric with options such as a gusseted crotch, hidden button-down collar, shirt retention system, and expand-on-demand waistband that increases comfort and functionality.

Winner: Sheriff’s Department

Program: Orange County, FL, Sheriff’s Department

If you’ve been to Florida in the summer, you know it can be excruciatingly hot. Lightweight, breathable uniforms are a must. This 2,700-member department did an extensive wear test before selecting the Blauer Flex RS distributed by Galls. Manufactured from lightweight, low-profile ripstop material, the uniforms are a perfect fit for the warmer climate of central Florida. Colored in the department’s traditional spruce green, the uniforms also include moisture-wicking features for comfort.

Winner: Police Department

Program: Miami Dade Police

Miami Dade is a department with over 3,000 sworn officers, making it the largest police department in the Southeast United States and the eighth largest in the country. In its quest for comfort and a better appearance, the department’s new uniform consists of a 5.11 pant and polo shirt, as well as a lighter-weight Class A and B uniform from Flying Cross. Colored in taupe and brown and equipped with performance features, the garments project a first-class look.

GALLS extends its heartfelt congratulations to the award-winning departments for their dedication to excellence in public safety uniform programs. As a trusted partner, GALLS remains committed to empowering agencies with innovative solutions that enhance both performance and morale.
