Loveland, Ohio – Loveland Police Officers may look a little different this month. The LPD Family, and the Loveland Police Officer’s Association, are jointly participating in the national movement, No-Shave November.
No Shave November began as a social awareness campaign for those suffering from cancer. According to the Center for Disease Control, police officers are at increased risk for many types of cancer.
The LPD family began this tradition in 2018 to honor retired Chief Denny Rees who passed away from cancer. This year our family is donating to Adam McMillan’s family. The officers are hoping their facial hair will begin conversations about cancer awareness throughout the month.
WHAT IS NO-SHAVE
No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. Learn more about how you can get involved and start getting hairy!
No-Shave November is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education.
