The issue of tattoos and police officers is a contentious one and not just here in the United States. The police union chief in Kent, England says that officers should be allowed to show tattoos while on duty. Ian Pointon, chairman of the Kent Police Federation, believes that tattoos can be an “icebreaker” when dealing with younger people.
“Frontline officers with tattoos have said to me when they talk to younger people their tattoos can often be a bit of an icebreaker, because they view them as art work.”
