|This mustache...against policy *sad face*|
This is a great article on the BBC News Website Clickey about beards *slash* facial hair in a uniformed service.
In a police force i once worked for, the policy was this;
"It is not against force policy to have a beard or moustache, however these must be grown on your own time, not on forces time"This is a fantastically funny example of the sorts of policy police have been faced with in the past...thank god things are changing for the better.
Anyway, it took some musing to decipher what this means, but i enjoyed the debates we had about it!
We do celebrate Movember however...which i guess presented the force with a dilemma...should charity, or force policy win. In a triumph of common sense over policy, they allow us to grow facial hair on force time. Go Team!
