Methuen Wants To Know How You Feel About Cops With Tattoos

Via The Methuen Police Department wants to know how you feel about visible tattoos on their police officers. They say they have always had a strict policy regarding officers in uniform and the visible display of tattoos. As a paramilitary organization built on tradition, officers were not allowed to display visible tattoos while in uniform. But, times change...

In a Facebook post they say, "The Methuen Police Patrolman Association has been in discussions with the department to update and modify the policy to reflect the community standards of today’s society. In the past tattoos were seen as by many as unprofessional or frowned upon. Today, ink art has become more socially acceptable and for many people tells a story about who a person is and where they come from. A change in policy will also open up a new group of applicants who can now pursue a career as a police officer."
