Lt. Burns: Sipowicz, get rid of those sideburns.
Sipowicz: What sideburns?
Lt. Burns: You heard me, hippie

No, because the facial hair is what helps us determine which twin is the evil one. If neither of them have facial hair, we will have no clue which is which. It'll be chaos!

EXACTLY what I was thinking. Except I wonder if there needs to be a distinction between EVIL police department twins and BIZZARO police department twins.

Clarification might be in order.

I would assume the bizarro cops would actually help the public. Like instead of taking people's money for no reason, they would return your wallet if you dropped it. Or, I don't know, at least attempt to find out who burgled my apartment 2 days after I moved in.

That, or they'd be born via eggs:

But goatees can be so slimming for those vets with a few too many visits to the donut shop under(and above) their belts.

/no they can't

Of course, the "cop stash" is still allowed.

Most of the male population has abandoned the mustache only look, but it still thrives in the cop culture. Fascinating.

...and they think THIS will help people have respect for them???

In other words, no goatees, no chin strap beards (think Barry White)

Take my beard? Ah, hell no children...

The department also allows officers to grow beards if they suffer from Pseudofolliculitis barbae

I'm so tired of Pseudofolliculitis barbaeites getting preferential treatment.

there goes my trying to be the youngest person ever to win a goatee................if i'ma be in the NYPD
 
2008-01-14 07:57:37 PM  
No idea if its for respect, as Firelick mentioned. But I do know, in the fire department, we don't allow much of it because of the fact that it is sometimes known to interrupt with the seal on the air mask.

Or so they say. They've always fit for me when I've let mine grow and tried it out. /shrug

This happened in August when Chief Giannelli sent a memo re: "military sharp" hair, patent leather shoes, buffed motorcycle boots, etc. Recent memo was an update on beard length for the medical exceptions.

Beard policy started in both FDNY and NYPD for MASK SEAL reasons.

"The department also allows officers to grow beards if they suffer from Pseudofolliculitis barbae, a dermatological condition better known as PFB that is common among black men and afflicts those who shave with rashes and scarring, mostly on and under their chins, as well as on their cheeks and necks."


That's racist!!!! They're saying that a black man is too weak to deal with a skin condition? Somebody call Jesse and Sharpton on the bat phone.

Anyone have that line about authority emanating from the lip?
