Sheriff’s Office participating in No-Shave November

Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland; November 8, 2016 -----  No-shave November is about generating awareness and raising money for cancer research, patient support, and prevention initiatives. The goal is to have people donate the money they would typically spend on shaving and grooming to funds such as the American Cancer Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In the past, members of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office have participated in No-shave November by growing mustaches – which is currently allowed in the policies governing the appearance of deputies and other members of the office. This year, we are taking it up a notch.

For the month of November, Sheriff Jim DeWees has temporarily removed the limitations on facial hair, stating “For the remainder of November, deputies are allowed to grow a beard, mustache or goatee.” Members who wish to participate have been asked to donate $30 each to the American Cancer Society, and the funds raised through this effort will be presented to the local office of the American Cancer Society at the end of the month.
