Depending on the department the officer could have a hefty uniform bill when he hires on. Generally departments that require you to buy uniforms provide a uniform allowance, but in the department I work for they pay it twice a year (January and July) so if you hire on between those dates you're on your own until you get that bonus, and you can easily spend several hundred to over a thousand on your uniform and accessories (over and above what the department provides.)

Galls is a good choice for the accessories, even boots (which they run through surprisingly quickly.)
