What is your tattoo policy?

We allow tattoos visible to the public while on-duty, except on the face, neck or hand (a tattoo or brand symbolic of a civil union or marriage on the ring finger is permitted with approval).  We prohibit tattoos, body art, or brands that are extremist, indecent or sexist regardless of location on the body. Tattoos, body art, or brands that advocate or symbolize gang affiliation, supremacist, or extremist groups, or drug use, are also prohibited.
