The MAXX from Tactical Research by Belleville Boot 

is like a Pillow for Your Feet

Belleville is a name that a lot of you may know if you were in the Armed Forces, but it does not have the brand recognition yet in the Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMS markets here in Louisiana. We expect that to change soon. We are going to start off at APE with the 8" and 6" Maxx boot. Watch the video to learn more about it and you can find it in our NOLA store or at soon!

When last we posted, the City of New Orleans had just released the "new" uniform bid for 2014. As we pointed out, it was just as screwed up as the 2012 bid.  At the pre-bid conference, we raised so many issues that we were told there would be an addendum coming out to "fix the problems".  Well a couple of days later the problems sure got fixed- the bid was cancelled!

A few weeks ago, the city made another effort at putting out a bid.  This time there were some improvements made- all at the suggestion of the members of the NOPD Uniform Committee- but the bid request was so mistake-riddled that we still suggested three pages of corrections in order to make the thing bid-able.  

The end result? The bid was AGAIN cancelled.  As NOPD members of the local Police Organizations may have heard, the city is going to issue checks, as it did pre-vouchers, instead of making the officers wait even longer for the Purchasing Office to try to correct its mistakes.  

It looks like our fight against the city in the name of fairness and competence has netted the officers what they wanted all along- a return to the checks and an escape from an unacceptable contract with a subpar vendor.

Well folks, the 2014 NOPD Uniform Contract Bid is out.  We are currently working on our submission and we thought you would want to know that the bid is just as poorly written as last year's bid.  Here is the link to the solicitation if you want to check it out.

Admirably, some of the problems from last year's solicitation were corrected.  Unfortunately, even more new holes were opened up in this year's edition.  We have too much work to do, figuring out how to make sense of this mess, to get into another full explanation of the issues.  Just rest assured that whoever put this solicitation together has left the city and NOPD's officers vulnerable to yet another debacle of a uniform contract.  

Of course, we shall do our best to win and thereby save everyone from that misery they previously experienced.  

Be careful out there...

A Revelation: Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology by DSM
The Alpha Elite Series is the first body armor to be based on Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology by DSM, available only from Point Blank. It breaks new ground in polymer science and ballistic technology. DSM Dyneema started with Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber, and made it even stronger. In its unique unidirectional construction, it results in body armor weighing just .88 pound per square foot, achieving a new low in weight and a new high in flexible, all-day comfort.

But there’s much more to the Alpha Elite story:
