There are a several factors to consider when you are in the process of choosing boots. We will take a look at these and consider each component, but one element that shouldn’t be overlooked is support.
Whatever you chose, make sure the Boots support your feet and ankles. Working for the Police and Security can put you into all kinds of different terrains and you will definitely need Supported ankles.

There are several other factors to consider when choosing your next Police Boots:-
If your Boots are not waterproof, it could be a very long day at the office! Most quality and affordable Boots are waterproof. At the very least you should chose water resistant boots, but these won’t last and will degrade quickly.
Check the soles. You need good quality soles on your Boots for obvious reasons. Within the Police and security you can get into all sorts of hidden places inside and outside, so this means you need to grip to the terrain the best you can.
Some boots come with reinforced soles, which can be great. What you don’t want is thin low quality soles when treading around broken needles, glass, rusty nails etc.
Lots of Boots come with both these days, where the zip is located on the side of the boots. What this does is allow for quicker release of the boots from your feet.
This feature could be handy in an emergency and need them off in a hurry. It also allows you you have the same fit each time you put the boot on, as you’re not undoing the laces each time.
One drawback with the zips is when the zipper breaks as this usually means that you need a new pair, unless you get the zip repaired which can be costly.
