Loveland Police Chief Sean Rahe is not shaving during No Shave November in honor of former Chief Dennis Reese.

Loveland, Ohio – The City of Loveland Police officers may look a little scruffy this month. The Department, and the Loveland Police Officer’s Association, are participating in the national movement, No Shave November. No Shave November began as a social awareness campaign for those suffering from cancer.

Former Loveland Chief Dennis Rees was a founding member of The Shield Ohio.

Chief Sean Rahe said, “The LPD family just lost retired Chief Dennis Rees to a long battlewith cancer and we wanted to do something special to remember him. One of the officers pointed out Denny was famous for his rather robust mustache, so we thought it was a great idea to join No Shave November for Denny.” (Former Loveland Police Chief Dennis “Denny” Rees passes)

The Loveland Police Officers’ Association chose The Shield Ohio as their November charity. Chief Rees was a founding member of The Shield Ohio, which provides financial assistance to police officer’s families when as officer is killed, or badly injured, in the line of duty. Each officer participating in No Shave November is donating one dollar each day to The Shield Ohio. The Association made a separate donation of $1,000 to the charity. The officers are hoping their facial hair will begin conversations about The Shield Ohio and awareness for its mission throughout the month.

Rahe said this is the first time he has let his facial hair grow and, “It itches.”
