  • Piercings

    Just a quick easy question Do ear piercings come across as immature/unprofessional when you are applying for a job as a LEO? I don't mean highly gauged ears, just normal captive bead ear piercings (10g to be specific). I won't have them if I apply anyway since I don't want anything that someone could grab onto in a fight and injure me with, but it terms of the hiring process how are piercings viewed? Thanks.

    If you're a female, they're fine. If you're a guy, take them out.

      Would you say it's the safety issue or the maturity issue? I would guess mostly the maturity issue, but is that true?

        Thats the great thing about piercings...you can take them out. I have several piercings...some visible some not. Everything comes out during my tour. On my days off, I may stick them back in depending on what I'm doing.

        Our agency does not allow males to wear earrings while working...nor would I want to even if I could. Safety issues asside, there are some things cops should not be doing. To me, earrings while in uniform would be unprofessional. Just like smoking...I'm not against smokers...and I have a smoke once in awhile myself, but when I see an officer in a crowded street puffing away, it seems unprofessional to me. When you are off and in plain clothes, have at it...smoke them up and put in all the bling you want.

          Yes, I happen to agree with the professionalism aspect quite a bit, smoking especially. I just wasn't sure since I don't see it spelled out anywhere in the requirements on any sites that male officers can't have piercings.

                If you are a guy, take them out for any and all interviews and tests. They come across as unprofessional and can be a safety issue if you got hired.
