Exposed arms is defined as visible below the sleeve length of the uniform summer shirt or visible below the sleeve length of a summer shirt worn by plainclothes employees and non-sworn employees.

3. The concealing of tattoos/branding/intentional scarring through the use of Band-Aids, bandages or other such coverings shall not be allowed.

Acceptable is defined as not morally objectionable, racially oriented or sexually explicit as determined by the police chief.
All employees who fall under the exception will be required to provide photographic documentation of all existing visible tattoos/branding/intentional scarring. If employees granted an exception have any additional visible tattoos/branding/intentional scarring added, they will then fall under all the requirements of this chapter.
