How: Research the topic of hiring practices in law enforcement; use your textbook, internet, and other scholarly resources. When writing your paper focus on the following questions: How successful have police officers been in challenging police department regulations affecting: Grooming, personal appearance, obesity, and tattoos? Minimum height and weight requirements, Citizenship and residency requirements (meaning living in the same city or county that you police) and a no tobacco policy. Would the departments hire you if you had tattoos? Alternatively, if you smoked.
