Courtesy Patrol cracking down on attire, behavior at Schofield Barracks
You can't rock your baggy pants at Schofield Barracks anymore.
Teams called Courtesy Patrol are cracking down on attire that's deemed inappropriate on the military base.
That includes short-shorts, bare midriffs and pants that are worn too low.
It's not just soldiers who have to dress appropriately while on base. The rule extends to civilians as well, especially in commissaries and post exchange.
The Courtesy Patrol is also on the lookout for poor behavior, like uniformed soldiers walking while talking on a cell phone, which is a violation.
KITV4 News spoke with a Schofield Barracks spokesman and he says the Courtesy Patrol is not about being a "fashion police" but about a standard of conduct and professionalism.
