    The only thing unprofessional, is a cop who whines about things which really, in the big picture, do not matter. Facial hair, does not matter. Bad breath, does not matter. Zits, do not matter. Crooked teeth, tatoos, gay or straight, man or woman, black or white, brown or yellow, tall or short, Christian or Athiest. Nothing matters.

    Except courage.

    If your friend with the face muffin and the shaved head had the rocks to put on the uniform, the badge and the gun and go out there and risk his buttocks before you did, then back off. Trust me. Let it go. It doesn't matter.

    Once you have mastered your own circle of influence then venture out into others. But not until.

    Be safe.
    perfect. myself and half my dept. have gotees and mustaches.

    to the original poster: there really are more important things for you to be worried about this early in your career.

    Gee, shucks, man. Whatever I can offer is yours. All of us learn things in different walks of life. What a shame to take it all with you, rather than to pass it off to the next wave of heroes.

    I am glad you found a nugget in my pile of coal. It's a huge pile.

    Carry on...

    ...and his partner.

    Personally, I don't like facial hair, but I don't see it as all that serious a matter. To me, a person can look proffesional with it, or without it.

    His actions and words will determine his degree of proffesionalism far more than the facial hair or lack of it.

    JMHO.

    You said you are a rookie. You are in no position to criticize the department. You won't be around long if you are as vocal around the station about something as petty as a goatee.

    Personally, I think uniformed officers should be allowed to wear full beards, neatly trimmed, handlebar and Fu Manchu mustaches.

    But my dept allows facial hair. I am so so about it to say the least. But there is this one guy that has a shaved head and this huge bushy gotee. Like its outrageous and I would love to shave it off his face. I just think its highly unprofessional that they have it. NOBODY in illinois that I know of allows facial hair of this manner. I have seen some thats allow very close trimmed hair..but thats it. What are your guys opinions on this?
    Well either hes growing it out for a possible VICE spot about to open or just waiting till it is long and bushy enough to cut off and make a tupee out of

    I don't know where you are in Illinois, but it is a big state. Lots of areas around here allow it. I have a short goatee and mustache. I trim it every week or so to keep it very short. I do it because I hate shaving around my chin especially in the winter. I still feel I look professional. I will admit that some do let it get out of control, but that falls back onto the supervisors.
