  • Covering tattoos in summer - suggestions?

    Hi Folks,

    My department's policy on tattoos requires those of us with full sleeve tattoos to cover up in the summer on patrol (wearing navy blue PDUs). We're looking at comfortable alternatives for summer and I'm looking for suggestions. We've looked at various arm sleeves and there are a number of issues with them. I'm about to test out 5.11's Taclite long sleeve PDU shirt. Anyone out there in this situation who has found a good alternative?

    Thanks!

    They let you wear whatever you want? Our guys/gals wear long sleeves 5.11 pdu's or those spandex arm socks.
    Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

      Tat Jacket or Tat2X is what I think most agencies suggest. Our officers have to have tattoos approved, so a full-sleeve is a no-no. However, smaller visible ones are ok, for now.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.
