Great News From ServiceWear

We are pleased to share that we have exciting news for you that ServiceWear has a new cooperative contract with National IPA and TCPN. ServiceWear Apparel has been awarded a contract for “apparel, uniforms, accessories, products and services” by National IPA through lead agency Region 4 Education Service Center in Houston, Texas. More details on our transition will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead.

We’ve created a service model built exclusively to fulfill the needs of government agencies and nonprofits. This contract will continue to make available the biggest brands in workwear, designed expressly to meet the rigors of the broad range of needs by those in public service: Red Kap, Horace Small, Bulwark, Wrangler Workwear, and Chef Designs, all manufactured by VF Imagewear, the largest manufacturer of work apparel in the world. Over 16 million people go to work in VF Imagewear manufactured products each week.

We want to express our gratitude to U.S. Communities for their assistance the past seven years. And while our current U.S. Communities contract will expire at the end of this year, our customers can rest assured that they can continue to rely on the same great service, pricing, and product selection they’ve come to expect from ServiceWear without interruption.

We are grateful for the opportunity to be of service to our valued customers across the United States and look forward to continuing these relationships in the years to come. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you and your agency.

2015 Correctional Officer of the Year Award Presented to Officer Jason Parker

2015 Correctional Officer of the Year Presentation

ServiceWear Apparel announced Jason Parker, correctional officer of the Westville Correctional Facility (WCC), as the 2015 Correctional Officer of the Year. The award honors a correctional officer who goes above and beyond the call of duty in service to his or her facility and community.

Officer Parker’s nomination by administrative assistant, David Leonard, placed him as a finalist. After conducting a nationwide vote over the internet, Mr. Parker was the overwhelming choice, winning a $1,000 grand prize, plus $1,000 worth of apparel for Westville Correctional.

Officer Parker has served the Indiana Department of Corrections for over 14 years managing work crews, overseeing high-security transports and maintaining safety for everyone who steps foot on the premises of WCC. You can read Mr. Parker’s full winning nomination, as well as those of the other finalists here.

ServiceWear Apparel executive vice president, Jim Burnett, presented the award to Officer Parker at a presentation in the office of Indiana governor, Mike Pence. Parker remarked, “After reviewing the nominations of the finalists, I am humbled to have been selected by my peers. To have my family in the Governor’s Office for the presentation is an honor that none of us will ever forget.”

Sgt. Dennis McGill of Edinburgh Correctional Facility earned the runner-up award and will receive $500 in apparel for his correctional facility.

Indiana Governor, Mike Pence, noted, “Indiana Department of Correction staff work in one of the most stressful and under-appreciated fields of public service. For Indiana to have both the winner and runner-up recognized in a national award campaign is an amazing accomplishment for our state.”
