Arturo Bojorquez of the IV Press and the El Centro Police Department have invited the public to voice concerns about police offices displaying a tattoo. People officers using the largest organ of the body as a billboard to advertise their sentiments, religion, or affiliations with associations, clubs or chapters is problematic for many reasons.

Demonstrating impartiality is an important aspect of police work when applying the law equally. Displaying tattoos demonstrates a bias or opinion and diminishes the appearance of being neutral.
