Rescinds: Policy 2.07 (February 1, 2015)
Issued By: Chief M.J. Register
The words “he, his, him,” which may appear in this policy, are used generically for clarity and ease of reading. These terms are not meant to imply gender and relate to all employees of the Department.
Grooming standards are based on several elements including neatness, cleanliness, safety, and appearance. The limits set forth are reasonable, enforceable, and ensure that personal appearance contributes to a favorable image of the Department. Any difference between men’s and women’s policies recognizes the difference between the sexes and is not a factor in assuring equal opportunity.
