Muskogee police officers are raising awareness of male-specific cancers this month by participating in No-Shave November, according to Officer Lynn Hamlin.

Lieutenant Andy Simmons got the idea started off, and now even officers who aren’t growing beards are donating money to the event, because they are using all money raised to support the annual Cops and Kids event in December, where police take underprivileged children shopping at Walmart.

“Just knowing they’re helping the children in our community was enough for our officers to say ‘yes, sign me up’”, Hamlin said.

Officers who are growing beards must keep them neat and trimmed, according to the department.
