    Facial Hair policy

    Ok Ok, not trying to spread the rumor just trying to confirm the rumor...since the merger with FDOT, more and more members are demanding a policy that would allow all of us to grow goatee's and/or neatly trimmed beards, anyone else up for a policy change. Most of the other state agencies are allowed too. :cop:

    DO NOT change the policy. Facial hair looks extremely unprofessional. Look at other states policies... You DO NOT see State Troopers with facial hair.

    Increasing morale? Bull$hit. Increasing laziness, you bet your ass.

    This is not the Navy. There are studies that concluded that the public perceptions of Police officers with facial hair (beards & Goatee) are not to be taken serious and it’s not professional.
    I myself like goatees and I let it grow on my RDO's, and A/L. But not in uniform. I respect your view, but the image of a Highway Patrol/State Police has always been one of military bearing, clean cut...
    Let’s be careful not to slide down that slippery slope, next it will be men asking to wear ear rings,

    “Oh, this will improve morale”.

    Next can Male trooper also want pony tails?

    “Well, you let women wear pony tails”

    This will not improve morale, we have seen over and over gain of all the toys we received and morale has not improved such as;

    Taser
    Off Duty 32 Hrs a week (used to be only 24 hrs a week)
    AR-15
    Tinted windows
    Lenient pursuit policy
    You can now wear any boot you chose instead of just the Rocky’s
    Glocks
    Chargers
    Campaign Hat instead or the old stenson hat

    What else did I miss?

    There are only two things that will improve morale
    1. $$$
    2. More Troopers on the road.
    Just my 2 cents.

    The Department of Corrections relaxed its policy several years ago. In my opinion, that was a big mistake. The polo shirts and BDUs damaged the concept of a professional appearance. When the facial hair policy was relaxed that killed it. It isn't unusual for the inmates to look more squared away than the officers.

    This is the "new" highway patrol :lol:

    What's wrong with State Troopers wearing earrings?

    State Troopers should be allowed to wear baseball caps.

    Facial hair and tattoos should be allowed as well. Nothing cooler than a heavily bearded man covered with tatts wearing a State Trooper uniform.

    FHP needs to keep up with the fashion trends.

    Wow, I have seen it all now; someone who equates growing a goatee/beard with an increase in laziness. Please do tell the correlation between having facial hair and how much productivity one has while in uniform? I guess you were thinking we would be more likely to hang out at the station applying our Just For Men treatments?
