BPD officers encouraged to don "Beards for Breast Cancer"

In an effort to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Beaumont Police Department will participate in Jefferson County Constable Christopher Bates' "Beards for Breast Cancer" campaign. Though the campaign was intended for the month of October, Officer Carol Riley states the department will continue it through the end of December.

To participate, officers must donate at least $10 to the Julie Rogers Gift of Life Program for each month they wish to take part through the end of the year. For those that donate, the department's policy prohibiting facial hair will be temporarily suspended. All officers are of course welcome to donate regardless of their ability or desire to grow a beard.

Donations will be made online at https://giftoflifebmt.org/donate/ and officers are free to donate as much as they wish. Donations may be dedicated to a friend or loved one.
