Police: no visible tattoos allowed?
A proposal to ban people with tattoos from joining the NSW police force is absurd, the state opposition says. Should police officers be allowed to have visible tattoos? Have Your Say!
Under the proposal being drafted for Commissioner Andrew Scipione, prospective police recruits with tattoos would be knocked back and current officers with tattoos would have to conceal them.
John Stanley with Assistant police commissioner Michael Corboy, one of the authors of the proposal, said the move was about professionalism and presenting the right look to the community.

Honestly i strongly think that Police should be able to. I believe they should because, as everyone else police have the right to get tattoos. Honestly you could be working in a bakery or a butcher and have a tattoo. So that is what i think. Police should have the right to be able to were tattoos without hiding themAndrew Wednesday 8 February, 2012 - 5:24 PM
Tattoos on Police is an insult to the position that should require respect. How much respect do you think you have with Hinges tattooed on you inner arms or LEFT and RIGHT tattooed on your knuckles, not to mention whites with Mauri inkJohn Archer Monday 30 January, 2012 - 3:48 PM
It's about time we got up to date with changing attitudes to tattoos. Body piercings would be dangerous for a police officer involved in any altercations but tattoos do not impair their performance. People need to stop judging a book by the cover and equating any tattoos with criminal, undesirable elements. As to 'normal people' finding them offensive, maybe you arn't so normal, get over youself and respect someone else's decision. Have you ever thought sharing a love of a tattoo might be some way of police relating to people on the street?Ben Monday 30 January, 2012 - 1:20 PM
I hate tattoos. They are always ugly to look at and do nothing to enhance appearance. When I was a child, tatts. were frowned upon and synonymous with criminals and were not socially acceptable. There are still plenty of people around today who hold that view.Jan Monday 30 January, 2012 - 12:10 PM
Police are meant to be perceived as a role model for society and need to continue to build on their great visual respect for the community to feel comfortable and approachable.
Marking yourself with a tattoo is a personal choice however proudly displaying for the community within a professional industry environment is completely out of line.
Tattoos are an intimidating source and sometimes related to gangs
