  • LE and the "Stache"

    I have always been a Goatee guy.

    My wife dreads the "Stache"

    What is the typical policy on facial hair in a Police department.

    I'm going to be starting the academy soon. I hate having to shave everyday, and was just curious about my possible options.

    I' am very grateful for all the information I have been able to find on here. But could not find this topic in a previous thread.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I do fully recognize this is a petty question, and probably a stupid one at that.
    Just thought I would confess this of the bat.

      I grew a "stache" because when I joined up, I looked so young that everyone asked to talk to the "Real Deputy" - they thought I was an explorer!! I got used to it and 20 years later the "stache" and my eyebrows are the only hair that still grow on my head

      Many departments don't allow a goatee or beard - they can interfere with the seal on a gas mask. Others don't mind, as long as you maintain a well groomed appearance.

        If you went to my academy you would have no options. In my academy we all had to be clean shaven everyday, no facial hair at all. Be prepared for this possibility. Once out, we have to comply with military grooming standards. I agree with it, beards, go-tees, fu-man-chu, chin straps, soul patches etc all look terrible when worn with a uniform. Long hair, dreads, corn rows and braids also look terrible.

          We're allowed to have a mustache... but I look like a dork with one so I don't. I have to shave every day and it still looks like I need to shave halfway through the shift.

            The 70's porn star mustache is required at most agencies. The only other accpetacle "stache is this one
            The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
