dc.descriptionWith many generations working alongside one another in the workforce today, it is apparent that grooming policies are becoming a concern for law enforcement agencies. Tattoos, body piercings, and extreme hairstyles or facial hair are now more common in society and culture and with that comes an increase of law enforcement applicants having tattoos, body piercings, and extreme hairstyles. Law enforcement agencies should have clearly defined policies regarding professional appearance and personal grooming while on duty. Clearly defined grooming policies will assist officers in determining what is or is not approved by their departments. It is imperative for law enforcement agencies to take a proactive rather than a reactive approach to this situation. Department policy makers should evaluate grooming policies on a regular basis due to the ever-changing climate of society.
