My name is Jason from the northern part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. I went vegetarian about 7 months ago after seeing 'Meet Your Meat' and reading the 'Food Revolution'. I'm interested in going vegan but am not quite there yet. I'm looking forward to perusing this boards and picking up ideas for maintaining this new lifestyle. So far, I'm really enjoying the change in my life and have lost about 15 pounds.

I work as a police officer and am trying to figure out the best way to approach my department about their requirement that we wear leather police gear. If anyone has gone through this or knows someone who has, I'd appreciate some input. I want to have my ducks in a row before I make the pitch to grant an exception for me. Looking forward to hearing from some of you.

Welcome to VB!

I have no idea if there is non-leather police gear, so I'm sorry I can't help you there.

Welcome to VB.

Maybe you can keep the leather police gear for the last thing to change.

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
