LACEY – November has grown into December in the Lacey Township Police Department, and so has the no-shave movement for raising money for cancer awareness and research.

Police Chief Michael DiBella said his department and other emergency services in town will continue what they started for No-Shave November and keep their beards growing through New Year’s Eve.

The police department, Lanoka Harbor Fire Department, Bamber Lakes Fire Department, Lanoka Harbor EMS Squad and Lacey Township Dive Team raised $4,816 as of Nov. 30. They hope to raise $6,000 total.

Funds raised will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Prevent Cancer Foundation and Fight Colorectal Cancer.

“I want to thank all of my police officers, and the members of our emergency services for their dedication to No-Shave November. As of January 1st, 2019, the Lacey Township Police Department grooming policy will be back in full effect until next year’s No-Shave November,” DiBella said.
