Tattoo Policy

The Department of Safety, Division of State Police, has implemented the following policy for tattoos.

Candidates are prohibited from having any form of tattoo on the head, neck, face, or hands. Tattoos that we deem not to be "extremist" (racist, sexist, or otherwise indecent) are allowed on forearms up to but not past the wrist, provided that the candidate will submit to wearing a black compression sleeve on the affected arm(s) to cover the tattoo(s) whenever on duty in any short-sleeved uniform, or to wear long sleeves in any plain clothes assignment.
