Class B Uniform Guidelines

The Class B Uniform is the standard everyday duty uniform for ProTac. 

The Class A Uniform is used for ceremonies or special events and the Class C is used for Training or Office Operations.  


All Hats must be Black

ProTac has embroidered baseball caps available to officers.  Hats are available in S/M, L/XL, and XXL Flexfit as well as adjustable style.  

Due to the lack of available ProTac hats at this time plain black baseball caps may be worn by officers who have not been issued a ProTac hat.


All Undershirts must be Black

In the Class B Uniform, The top button of the uniform shirt is unbuttoned.

A black crewneck undershirt must be worn under the uniform shirt.

The sleeves of a short sleeve undershirt shall not be visible under the uniform shirt.

Officers may wear a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve uniform shirt if; the undershirt is a tight compression material, and is all black.

Uniform Shirt

All Uniform Shirts must be Black

The standard Class B Uniform Shirt is the First Tactical Pro Duty Uniform Shirt Short Sleeve.

Traditionally, the Class B Uniform is a Short Sleeve shirt, but officers may wear a Long Sleeve option as long as the top button remains unbuttoned.

The Bla
uer Performance Patrol Polo Uniform Shirt is Authorized as well, though not available in long sleeve.

If you purchase your own Uniform Shirts, you will be responsible for getting the ProTac Shoulder Patches sewn on each shoulder.

Other Black Uniform Shirts may be approved on a case by case basis.  

ProTac issues metal badges to most officers.  The priority is given to armed officers but the goal is to have every officer have a issued ProTac badge.  Only ProTac badges may be worn, if you have not been issued a badge, you should not wear anything where the badge should go.

On the uniform shirt there are two holes that are sewn onto the left chest.  The badg
e pin is poked through the top and then through the bottom.  That will ensure the badge is in the proper place at all times.  The badge may only be worn on the left chest.

ProTac issues metal nameplates to all officers. Only ProTac issued nameplates may be worn.  Nameplates shall be worn centered above the right breast pocket directly on top of the pocket seam.

Body Armor - Under the Uniform Shirt

All Carriers must be Black

Vest that go under the Uniform Shirt are called Concealable Armor.

All Concealable vests are authorized, as long as they do not present an unprofessional look.  The most common cause for an unprofessional look is a vest being the improper size and/or being too bulky appearing. 

ProTac recommends Safe Life Defense for Body.  They have several different options as far as budget is concerned, and also offer payment plans on their products.  

It is important to understand the components of the vest.  A traditional Concealable Vest comes as a carrier with an insert-able panel in the front and back.  This panel is what provides the protection and is what makes the difference in price.  

Safelife Defense offers the following options:

Multi-Threat Level IIIA - Great entry level vest, will protect against most handgun rounds. ($500)
Enhanced Multi-Threat Level IIIA - Adds stab protection in addition to most handgun rounds. ($600)
Hyperline Level IIIA - Ultra thin and lightweight, same protection as above. ($1100)
FRAS - Flexible and defends against rifle threats.  ($1600)

Body Armor - Over the Uniform Shirt

All Carriers must be Black

If you would rather wear your vest outside your uniform shirt, you will need to get a Uniform Carrier.  

The panels from the Concealable Carrier can be removed and put into the Uniform Carrier.  It is wise to have the ability to switch your vest between the two carriers and have them both available to you.

Once you buy your Concealable Vest above, you can purchase just the Uniform Carrier, for around $180.

Other Outer Carriers may be approved, but they must have a uniform shirt look, allow you to place a badge on the outside, and have shoulder epaulettes.  You should get a potential Outer Carrier approved before purchasing.  If you do not, you may purchase a vest you are not allowed to wear with ProTac.

If you choose to wear the Uniform Carrier, you may also change the Uniform Shirt you wear.  Currently ProTac authorizes the First Tactical Pro Performance Shirt that may be more comfortable under the outer carrier.  Click to view the options below.
