Slidell Police’s No-Shave November: Don't Shave, Donate $25, Fight Cancer

SLIDELL, LA (AP) — Slidell police officers are getting a month off from rules requiring them to be clean-shaven and have neatly groomed hair if they give $25 to the fight against cancer.

         Chief Randy Smith approved participation in "No-Shave November" for officers who agree to donate money to an organization that promotes cancer awareness, research or support.

         He's also challenging other Slidell residents to join the campaign, and will feature them as well as officers on the department's Facebook page.

         The No-Shave November Web page challenges people to put down razors for 30 days and donate monthly hair-maintenance expenses to fight cancer.

         It suggests, "Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment."
