PROTECTING THOSE WHO SERVE
It all started in 1631,
In 1631, colonists in Boston, MA decided to make their city a more orderly and decent place to live. A local court ordered that “watches be set at sunset…”. Two days later, citizens organized their volunteers to become the first Boston Watch. The “night watch” reported fires, raised the hue and cry, maintained street lamps, arrested or detained suspicious persons and walked the rounds.
This was the humble beginning of policing in the United States
Since 1631, the responsibilities and risks for police officers all over the United States have expanded and grown. But one thing hasn’t changed… police officers need the right equipment to do the job safely as they serve the public.
Your profession is rich with history and tradition and 1631 is committed to outfitting the modern officer with the best in safety, comfort and style.
