Is a traffic police inspector allowed to wear a beard and dark glasses?

Have you ever met a traffic cop on the road with a moustache, beard, tattoos, piercings or at least dark glasses? Barely. The AvtoVzglyad portal decided to ask why traffic cops do not experiment with their own appearance.

If police officers in the US serve calmly in dark or mirrored glasses, and also do not disdain to wear a beard and mustache, then in Russia you will never meet such a “cop”. Why? The fact is that in the order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs “On the adoption of the code of professional ethics for employees of internal affairs bodies” it is written in Russian and white: the serviceman must look neat, as well as neatly trimmed and shaved . Yes, for some reason our law enforcement officers are prohibited from growing sideburns, wearing jewelry, having piercings, and shaving their heads.

In addition, law enforcement officers are not allowed to make tattoos, which are rather considered an attribute of “convicts”, nor are they allowed to mix civilian and uniform items in the service. In addition, it is strictly forbidden to keep your hands in your pockets and wear shoes that look inappropriate. And the duties of the traffic police inspector include wearing a hat for the season.

It is noteworthy that traffic enforcement officials are not prohibited from wearing sunglasses, but unspoken internal rules still recommend not wearing them. Despite the fact that sometimes this accessory turns out to be extremely indispensable, especially if it is served in the southern regions of the country.

The superiors regularly check the appearance and behavior of their subordinates. In particular to ensure that employees do not use smartphones for personal purposes. Although, it must be admitted, traffic cops still “use” them, at the risk of getting reprimanded.

But the police are allowed to wear a wedding ring. Same as smoking. True, a traffic police officer smoking a cigarette while communicating with a driver is as rare a phenomenon as the rapid arrival of a traffic police team at the scene of an accident. Probably, the unspoken rules also do not allow the patrol to rush to the accident.
