PITTSBURG (KRON) — Police officers in Pittsburg are free show their tattoos while on patrol, thanks to a new policy announced this week by the police chief.
Chief Brian Addington said in a Facebook videoon Monday that tattoos are “something of significance” to many officers in the Pittsburg Police Department.
“We want officers to be able to express themselves,” the chief said.
Addington went on to call the policy that prevented officers from showing their tattoos “outdated.”
“It’s just another way for members of our community to relate to the men and woman who work here,” he said.
