Hairy experience

As they have for several years, members of the City of Wayne Police Department will participate in Movember this year. Each of the participating officers will grow a beard or a mustache as part of a fundraising effort for the Movember Foundation, an organization which funds awareness of cancer research, suicide prevention and mental health. "As police officers, we can sometimes forget to make sure that our own health is a priority. The Movember campaign helps remind us that just like we have a duty to protect the community, we also have a duty to protect our own health. We owe it to our friends and family to make our own health a priority," a department organizer said. The officers are accepting donations to their cause all month as they continue to grow their facial hair to publicize the importance of the Movember Foundation.
