Officers Participating in No Shave NovemberNov 08, 2023 01:51PM ● By City of Dixon Press Release
DIXON, CA (MPG) - Dixon Police Department is partnering with our Dixon Police Officers Association for “No Shave November,” so don’t be surprised if someone in blue is looking a little scruffy. It’s all for a good cause.
The Dixon Police Department is proud to announce its participation in “No Shave November,” a nationwide campaign aimed at raising awareness and funds for cancer research, patient care, and other charitable causes. This effort is being conducted in partnership with the Dixon Police Officers Association (DPOA), symbolizing a united front in the fight against cancer and commitment to community engagement.
Originating in 2009, the initiative encourages participants to forego shaving for the month of November. The funds normally spent on shaving and grooming are then donated to selected charities. For police officers, this means a temporary relaxation of grooming standards, allowing facial hair growth in exchange for charitable donations.
Officers participating will make a contribution to our selected charity and are encouraged to share their “No Shave November” journey through social media to engage the community. The DPOA team site for the event is: https://no-shave.org/team/dpoa/
We invite the Dixon community to join us in supporting this important cause either by making a donation to the selected charity or by sharing our campaign on social media. Together, we can make a significant impact in the fight against cancer. The Dixon Police Officers Association team site is https://no-shave.org/team/dpoa/.
