Signs, signs, everywhere signs

This case reflects the realities that police departments and other public employers are facing on a daily basis and gives reassurance to those that have implemented dress and appearance policies. Although much of this case focused on the fact that tattoos are considered matters of personal expression, the court left us with another takeaway: By creating a all tattoos, regardless of the content, the city was able to convince the court that its policy was designed to promote efficiency and build public trust. Unlike those Greek letters on your ankle, that’s a bit of judicial guidance employers might not regret following.
