(KSL News) Utah Peace Officers are reaching out to their counterparts in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Today the officers loaded up a truck with supplies needed by police including uniforms, equipment, tools, food and water.

The officers said they hope to make things more comfortable for their fellow police officers -- many of who having been wearing the same uniforms since the day Katrina hit.

Aaron Rosen/ Utah Peace Officers Association: "These people need some new shoes. They need some new slacks. They need some new shirts and tops, especially with the waters as dirty and contaminated as they've been. They need a change of clothes. They need to feel clean."

The trucks and drivers taking the supplies to the gulf coast were donated to the UPOA for the trip.
