Odisha: Commissionerate Police orders cops with tattoos to remove those in 15 days

Bhubaneswar: The Twin City Commissionerate Police has directed cops having tattoos to remove those within 15 days.

An order dated 9.4.2024 was issued by the Commissionerate Police in this regard.

The decision has been taken to maintain professionalism among police personnel.

“A good number of unit men are found making tattoos on their body which demeans the image of the Battalion as well as Odisha Police since these are offensive, obscene and derogatory in nature. After careful consideration, it is decided that from today onwards tattoos that are visible while wearing uniform are not permitted,” the order said.

“All Guard I/Cs are directed to make a list of men having tattoos on their body part easily noticeable while wearing uniform and ask them to permanently remove the tattoos within 15 days from the date of receiving the orders, failing which necessary departmental actions as deemed fit shall be initiated against the wrongdoers. Once again, it is advised to avoid getting inked the face, neck and hand to maintain a level of professionalism,” it added.
