    That is correct. You are the first person who obviously works for CIS. There's been a lot of discussion about CIS here.

    I remember back in the day when they were issuing COVER 6 for everyone in SSU. I had a few friends who worked there. Oh, well, times change.

    My previous employer gave us a biweekly uniform allowance (we wore khaki BDUs and polos) and a boot allowance of $150 every year.

    Our uniform needs to be cleaned and pressed,black boots, no ear rings, hair can't touch the collar, no facial hair except for a trimmed mustache, and look clean and professanal. I just got out of the Military so keeping up with uniform requirements is easy. I don't know the rule for tattoos though. I have a few but there covered.

    Other than keeping your uniform clean I dont know what the requirements are. I just know they liked my look. I keep my hair short, no tatts, I stay clean and try to look professional.

    Ditto. Hair must be clean and cut like a gentleman. No visible tats. No earrings. No necklaces/chains/etc. No facial hair except for a mustache (and even that was frowned upon) and sideburns no longer than the middle of your ear.

    Yeah, we were strict.

    Tatoos? No problem. I work in the EP world of Brentwood California and Beverly Hills. A lot of my guys have tatts. Some of them got them when they were in the military. I do know this though, most Police and Sheriff's agencies will not hire guys with tatts on the neck, face, forearms(if too large)and hands. Hands are a big one...

    I've always thought about it like this:

    1. Hair should not touch the collar or be "outrageous," i.e. to the point that it distracts people. I don't think cornrows would, honestly. Isn't milspec, though.

    2. Tattoos are a big thing in law enforcement right now, a lot of agencies are going nuts and requiring bandages on forearms, or long sleeves in summer, or simply not hiring people with visible tattoos.

    See "outrageousness" rule above. If the company finds its distracting, have a long sleeve shirt.
