Suit and Tie, show up in jeans casual and they wont even let you in the building. A buddy was just there Monday and several who didnt show up properly attired were sent right back home.

"Business Attire" is always suit and tie. "Business Casual" is generally no tie or coat, but some offices allow polos instead of dress shirts. Therefore - Suit and Tie it is.

Suit and tie, and that means a suit jacket, not just dress shirt and tie. I know a guy who got tossed for no jacket.

Suit and tie. Tell him to be ready for strict discipline and mind games. Also they will make him strip off that suit and tie and do jumping jacks and pushups in an overcrowded room in his underwear.

not true at all. just went to one this week. You start with lots of paperwork, then take a vision test, hearing test, blood pressure test, EKG test and finally a drug test. After all that everyone waits about an hour and a half to get the results from the doctor. The only time your in your underwear is for 5 mins when taking the EKG.

They made me do it 3 years ago. I didn't have much paperwork though.

May I add for those:

1. Business Casual - Button shirt, slacks, shoes, belt. -clean (sport coat optional)
2. Business Attire - same a above, with added suit jacket and tie.
3. Black tie - Tuxedo and accompaniments: a black dinner jacket and matching trousers, an optional black formal waistcoat or black cummerbund, a white formal shirt, a black bow tie or alternatively a black long tie, black dress socks and black formal shoes. In hot weather a white dinner jacket may be substituted and the cummerbund is the preferred waist covering.

i always considered my business attire my armor. that should give you the best explanation in all cases what to choose. clean haircut. nice shave. good suit.

for the record i have always espoused turtlenecks in lieu of ties. ted williams didn't wear one before congress nor will the robfather.

I was just there this week and I personally saw a friend of mine who is a Sergeant there who said that Business Attire is still a suit and tie and that they do send applicants home who can't figure it out.  Good luck to your son and my time is almost up.  I can't wait to be paroled.

Two best days in a cops life are his first and his last, huh? Kinda like owning a boat. ;D
Thanks to all for the advice and well wishes.. I'll probably have more questions as this evolves.. Who knows, maybe I can drag his sorry butt in here when he gets settled.

Pardon the minor thread-jacking, but.... Seriously? He's going in for a physical and they want him in a suit and tie?

"Good morning. Nice Suit. Now take it off."

Hijack away.
One thing I'm trying to impress on my son is that if not exactly para-military the force is certainly like structured, so yes, put the suit on and take it off... dig that hole and fill it. Not so much because the hole is important as that he will dig it if you tell him to.
My take, and I may be way off base here, is that at least from the brass' perspective, this type of mind set will serve the force much better in times of unrest or worse that Syvester Stallone lobbing grenades outta the back of a pick up truck.
Not the greatest anology but I hope you get the idea.
