WOW, NYPD is going to allow Muslim and Sikh to wear Turbans and Beards.
“We’re making this change to make sure that we allow everybody in New York City that wants to apply and have the opportunity to work for the greatest police department in the nation,” said Commissioner James O’Neill in a Wednesday announcement.
Until now , it was prohibited to wear a facial hair and non-uniform head-wear.
Some policemen were allowed to sport one-millimeter beards.
“We want to make the NYPD as diverse as possible and I think this is going to go a long way to help us with that,” said O’Neill. The department currently has around 1,000 Muslim officers and 150 Sikhs.
