As a police officer, can I deduct the cost of uniforms and weapons maintenance?

Unreimbursed employee business expenses used to be a miscellaneous itemized deduction subject to the 2% of adjusted gross income floor. However, this deduction has been suspended for 2018 through 2025, so no deduction is currently allowable.
