After my Oct. 3 column on San Bernardino cops and their killer T-shirts, a lot of readers wanted to know how to find and buy the shirts.
Sample letter: “Hello Mr. Weeks, I really enjoyed your article on the sb police shirts. I have lived in San Bernardino my entire life, and I am regularly beset by my colleagues (who live in Redlands) on the shootings and crimes of San Bernardino. Jokingly they tease me about getting shot. Therefore, I would love to get one of those police shirts as a joke. I would be very grateful if you knew of a place I could buy one. Sincerely, Tyler Harp.”
As I told Tyler, and the others who have called or written, it is my understanding that the shirts are only being sold by off-duty cops to other off-duty cops, and are not available to the general public. If someone finds out differently, let me know and I’ll post the info. One number to try: San Bernardino Peace Officers Association, (909) 889-0661. That’s the union that represents San Bernardino police officers.
Good luck, and may the force be with you.
