Until a new recruit has been issued their uniform both males and females should wear the following:

  • Black Pants
  • White Shirt
  • Black Shoes
  • Tie

If you do not have these items DO NOT BUY THEM as cadets will be issued their uniform parts shortly and this is just clothing to wear in the meantime. If you do not have the clothing at hand pants and shirts that are clean and do not have holes and shoes that are clean are perfect.

Recruits are being sized in the 2nd and 3rd week of training. The Supply Officer may need to order uniform parts in which may cause a delay in the uniform being issued. Only recruits that have their paper work completely filled out and enrolled can be issued a uniform.
