In a show of solidarity and awareness for cancer, officers of the Suffern Police Department are participating in No Shave November. This initiative, which allows officers to forgo shaving, is especially significant this year as they aim to support a local emergency service member battling cancer.
Chief of Police Andrew Loughlin has relaxed the department’s grooming standards for November, allowing officers to grow facial hair as a gesture of support. While the identity of the individual they are supporting is kept confidential, the department encourages the community to join in their support and keep the individual in their thoughts during the holiday season.
The campaign underscores the department’s commitment to the community and the importance of standing together in the face of challenges like cancer. The Suffern Police Department’s involvement in No Shave November serves as a powerful reminder of solidarity and the impact of collective efforts in raising awareness and support for those affected by cancer.
