  • Tattoos for Scottsdale and Phoenix PD

    Hi, New to the forum!
    I was wondering what the current tattoo policy is for Scottsdale and Phoenix PD.
    I don't have any visible yet but i was wanting to get a full sleeve of an ocean back ground (coral reef, sharks, fish,shipwreck) things like that I was also wondering if all tattoos are disclosed I don't have anything graphic or even bad in the least just stupid ones that might get judgement. (shark fin on my thigh). Im fine with wearing long sleeves to cover but i'm worried about the hiring process. Obviously priorities come first but i do want this tattoo soon.

      Phoenix PD is actively recruiting and they actively answer any posts/replies or DMs you send to them on FB... Scottsdale PD just closed their application period so you would have to call them directly and see if a recruiter could field your call. I would say you get the answers directly from them so there is no chance of misinterpretation.

          Direct traffic in long sleeves and a tie in 100 degree weather before you decide you are "fine with long sleeves". Plenty of agencies wear long sleeves year round but I can tell you from many years of experience that when we switch from long to short sleeves it is like Christmas day.

            An option that I've seen at several agencies down in the South, including my own, is allowing the officer to wear something like a shooting sleeve that covers up the forearm, if that's where a possibly offensive tattoo may be. It keeps the tattoo covered and allows the officer to still wear short sleeves.

                Good to know. I have full sleeves on both arms. I will be applying to Phoenix PD. Do the officers ride tandem or do they always send 2 cars to each call? Here in Denver the officers ride tandem and have cover cars.

                  Typically you will ride solo, and always have a backup available when needed and asked for.
