SAPOL has a dress standards policy which includes the requirements relating to visible tattoos, hair and body art. Hair length and style is gender neutral; however for those wearing longer hair, the hair must be bound appropriately at the back of the head to comply with health and safety requirements.
In line with SAPOL’s professionalism and values, an employee may have visible, non-offensive tattoos including a full ‘sleeve’ style on their arms. This however, does not include tattoos which are on the ears, face, head, scalp, front or sides of the neck. Tattoos on the rear of the neck may be permitted but must not extend forward of the neck beyond an imaginary line drawn down vertically to the shoulder behind the back of the ear.
If you are uncertain as to your eligibility in these areas, please contact SAPOL recruiting.
