A sheriff’s department in Arkansas spends a large sum of money on cowboy hats.
The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office has spent more than $26,000 on cowboy hats for its deputies — which makes up 44 percent of the department’s annual clothing and uniform budget.
According to Arkansas Online, the sheriff’s office bought 120 Stetson felt hats for $155 apiece and 142 Resistol straw hats for $42.49 apiece.
“I wore one just about every day of my life so it feels kind of natural to wear it,” Deputy Elza Kirkwood told local media outlet KATV.
The cowboy hats are optional for deputies on patrol, but required for formal events like funerals and awards banquets.
“We do it because we’re trying to catch up. Every law enforcement agency in the area has a hat and we don’t. Now we have a hat,” Sheriff Doc Holladay explained to KATV.

Intel Committee has ‘recent evidence’ Ukraine witnesses are working together to ‘coordinate’ their stories

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.
"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."
"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.
Rudy Giuliani is looking for a lawyer — after saying he didn’t need one: report
On Wednesday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is looking for a defense attorney to represent him.
This report comes after Giuliani said last week that he would not seek legal representation unless he believed he needed it.
Giuliani is currently under criminal investigation for the scheme he apparently helped facilitate in the Ukraine, where Trump withheld military aid in the fight against Russia while demanding their leaders investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.
