SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Sevierville Police Department announced its officers would participate in No-Shave November. This year, similar to last, they are extending the challenge into October to raise cancer awareness.
“This marks the fifth year that the SPD has participated in the national program,” an SPD spokesperson said.
A release stated that the officers participating in the national challenge aimed to grow cancer awareness by embracing their hair. In addition, employees who participate will pay $30 a month to the American Cancer Society.
“Hopefully, our efforts and those of others will help raise cancer awareness, save lives and aid those who are fighting this terrible disease,” said SPD Chief Joseph Manning.
