Mesquite Police Department adds cowboy hats to uniform

You know how you tell people who aren’t from Texas that it isn’t all the things they’ve imagined? Well the Mesquite Police Department is here to prove you wrong.

Of Mesquite’s 220 police officers, 180 have chosen to wear a new, optional part of the uniform: a black straw cowboy hat. According to CBS DFW, the new $46 hat is an alternative to the standard hat all officers receive as part of their uniform.

Officers were also able to vote on what the optional hat would be. Lest you for one second forget that you are, in fact, in the state of Texas, the cowboy hat won over alternatives like a drill sergeant-style hat.

Yee-haw.
