5.11 Tactical’s David Hein accepts the 2016 Manufacturer’s Innovation Award for its Tactical Uniform for the Mexican National Police.

5.11 Tactical has been honored by the North-American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) with two Public Safety Best Dressed Awards. Taking home awards in the Manufacturer Innovation category, 5.11 Tactical was recognized for its Tactical Uniform for the Mexican National Police and its Stryke Pant for the Pima County (AZ) Sheriff's Department.

"This acknowledgement from NAUMD is an honor, and it’s our hope that law enforcement and public safety officials continue to benefit from the durable, purpose built gear we put out there," said David Hein, vice president of 5.11 Tactical’s professional division. "Professional, dependable and fully-functional uniforms are paramount to the success of an individual’s performance in the field. 5.11 Tactical’s innovative product design process and product development meetings—where we work with end users to precisely develop uniforms and tactical gear that meet industry needs and demands—enable professionals to adapt and respond to duties with confidence."

The awards competition recognizes police, fire and sheriff uniform programs in the U.S. and Canada, boasting a 38-year tradition of spotlighting the best dressed departments within each of these sectors. 5.11 Tactical, along with other honorees, was celebrated at an awards ceremony on May 24 at the NAUMD 2016 Annual Convention in Elizabeth, IN. The awards emphasize the importance of professional, neat, well-fitted and immediately identifiable uniforms for all involved in public safety and law enforcement. The award indicates the dedication and commitment of today’s uniform professionals to meet the exacting needs of public safety professionals. Judging is completed by fashion industry professionals who award points for originality, meeting client objectives and overall design.
