Fashion show planned to help inform the community about safety

MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — People’s United Bank, the Milford Police Department and Westfield Connecticut Post Mall will team up to educate the public with a Uniform Fashion Show on Thursday.

As uniformed municipal and private sector workers walk the catwalk during the event, the distinguishing features of true company employee uniforms and what kind of identification they use will be pointed out, making the process both fun and informative.

Created by People’s United Bank in collaboration with local law enforcement, the event provides the information and knowledge that families need to stay safe in their communities and at home. As recently as May 19, 2015, an 89-year-old woman in Stamford, CT opened her door to a man who claimed to be an employee of a local utility company. The man told the homeowner that her pipes needed a $50 inspection, which would later be reimbursed. He watched as she retrieved the money and led her down into the basement to distract her while an accomplice stole $51,000 from her home.

Models will include uniformed workers from companies such as Regional Water Authority, United Illuminating, Milford Public Works, Federal Express, and representatives from the Milford fire and police departments, among others.

The uniform fashion show is going to be taking place Thursday, June 25th from 11:00am – 12:30pm at the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall. Everything will be located on level 1 near Macy’s. People of all ages are encouraged to attend.
