Gloves are involved in both useful application, and syndicate operations, mainly because while wearing gloves will prevent the spreading of fingerprints, and prevent blood from spreading onto your person.
Types of GlovesEdit
Type 1- Insulated: These gloves are used exclusively to protect from electrical shocks while hacking into certain equipment. They exist in certain qualities, from being cheap to budget, normal, and high quality. Some of the cheaper examples will often not protect COMPLETELY from shocks, though it is much better than tampering around until you find yourself twitching, electrocuted on the floor.
Type 2 - Cloth : Most department heads start with these, and be suspicious of those who ask for them.
Type 3 - Latex: These are used mainly for preventing the spread of disease definitely needed by virology and most medical staff.
