    What is it about, "Thou shalt not.....", do some people not understand?
    Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

      Suit and Tie, polished shoes. Its a job-business interview. They watch everything you do from walking iun to talking, handshake, clean shaven, short neat hair. Blah blah blah. Good luck E
      I got nothing for now

          A friend of mine showed up in shorts and a t-shirt to turn in a birth certificate he left out of his package. Long story short...... he never heard from his background investigator.....his file is burried in the "To do when hell freezes over" list......

          I'll disagree a tad on this......( I am not an LEO yet)....Sometimes for us working at other jobs a suit and tie for a quick drop off visit is impossible because we have to go back to work( work in construction industry so changing isn't an option). I have not had any issues dropping something off in jeans and a collared shirt. Shorts and T----wouldn't do that for sure


          Suit and tie to the poly definately
          Just shut your damn hole

              When I took mine, they told me to dress causal, so unless then told you, suit and tie all the way. BTW good luck to you!!!

                I would say any type of meeting with the agency, with the exception of the physical, suit and tie. You would be surprised at what people wear to interviews, etc.

                    Sure thing, abrooks,

                    I've always looked at it this way... not only are you representing yourself, but you will be representing your prospective employer/agency as well. I want them to think that if I'm hired, I will do so in a professional manner at all times when wearing the uniform. Good luck on your polygraph.

                      I guess the LAPD makes it pretty easy... They gave me a sheet with all my appointment dates laid out, and next to each date box they gave a dress code. For medical exam, it said "casual/sneakers". For interviews it said "business attire", which meant suit in my eyes. For the poly it said "business casual", so I wore nice slacks, polished shoes, and pressed collared long sleeve shirt.

                      During the medical exam a couple guys wore full suits, while I was wearing pressed dockers, nice polo type shirt, and comfortable business shoes (coming from work). The female medical examiner didn't waste any time making me strip to my skibby's, because she had to do EKG, breathing, and physical examinations. In this case, I would think not paying attention to the dress code would be frowned upon, since removing a suit takes more time than the medical examiner has.

                      On Tuesday I have the psychological interview, which is my final step before certification. You can bet on the fact that I will be wearing my finest suit
                      Yes I'm a LEO... but I do no care enough to go through the trouble of changing the screen name.... sorry

                        One time my bi called me and asked me to stop by out of nowhere, and I told him I was at the gym and would need to go home and change, but he said don't worry about it just c'mon down. It really made me nervous though.

                        As per the poly, a friend of mine warned me ahead of time to wear a shirt and slacks. He made the mistake in going in in a running suit because the polygrapher said to dree comfortable.Thank God he warned me or I would have probably made the same mistake.
