I just wonder why the majority of coppers (fellas not wpc's) feel the need to look like doormen/thugs with the shaven headed tattoo look. I wouldn't mess with a wpc who looked like that! Maybe they're moonlighting...

I have to agree.

I don't like tattoos in the first place and a Police Officer should be forced to wear a long sleeved shirt if they insist on having them.

Just my opinion and others are available.

An article on the BBC news website last week, a Spanish graduate student was refused admittance to the Spanish police because she had a small tattoo - on her heel. I am no fan personally but that does seem to be going too far.
Oops, I misrembered, it was the Spanish army:

I agree Chris totally over the top.


This is what I personally find unacceptable although others will have different views.


For me it is very unprofessional

Absolutely agree (and more importantly, so does my wife).

I just don't get it. Never have got it. Why do people wish to be illustrated? However, each to their own I suppose. I have to keep on reminding myself about books and covers.

I think we are of a different generation. Have you seen the Staffordshire constable on telly with long hair in a pony tail, ZZ Top beard and tattoos? He's evidently very good but I totally agree with the above comments.

I'd find it hard to take someone like that seriously.

In days gone by, actually about 30 years ago, I owned a boat, kept on the Thames. It got broken into, and so I called a passing Thames Police patrol. They took a few notes then asked "got any beer onboard?"
