City vendor Command Uniforms cut vests specifically for students
MILTON, GA., Jan. 21, 2010 - The dozens of children in Birmingham Falls Elementary School's student-staffed "Safety Patrol" will really stand out thanks to the work of Milton's Police Department and its uniform vendor, Atlanta-based Command Uniforms. On Jan. 21, the company donated 40 bright orange vests manufactured to fit the children. The Milton Police Department, which had been contacted by the school for the vests and worked through Command Uniforms to provide them free of charge, gave administrators the gift.
Mike Dykes, a Birmingham Falls representative, said students in the Safety Patrol monitor hallways in the mornings and afternoons, mentor younger peers and act as ambassadors during special events. The vests will set them apart, he said, and make them especially visible on the school's sidewalks and in its carpool area.
