One of their newest investigators, Tim Rivest, is in remission. He said he's lucky to have such a great group supporting him.
"When I was going through treatment, I was unable to grow hair," said Rivest. "The department and the community have been behind me throughout the entire tribulation and it means a lot to me that they came up with this idea."
Some of the officers got a head start on their Novem-beards. The rest of the crew started Thursday. Officers will also gather donations as they grow their facial hair during the month.
