Springfield Police Change Policy on Tattoos for Officers

The Springfield Police Department says it’s changing its requirements for tattoos on officers.

Prior to 2015, the department would only hire officers whose tattoos could not be seen when they wore a short-sleeved shirt.

Now, the department will allow officers to have visible tattoos, as long as they are not on the face or neck.

Police Chief Paul Williams tells the Springfield News-Leader public opinion has changed regarding police officers with tattoos.
