ATLANTA – Like most cops, Deidre Goodwin has had some close calls during traffic enforcement duties. It has inspired her to create a new pair of gloves she hopes will keep cops safer.
The gloves are visible from 1,250 linear feet away, glow in the dark, and have an “X” on the palm to symbolize “stop” and an arrow on the back to help direct drivers.
The glove has been adopted by agencies in Atlanta, Cobb, and DeKalb counties, among others.
