Lompoc police officers ditching their razors for No-Shave November

Posted: Updated:

Lompoc Police Department officers are participating in No-Shave November to raise awareness about childhood cancer.

It's an issue close to the heart of the police department after 15-year-old Police Explorer Noah Scott, son of Cpl. Charles Scott, lost his battle with leukemia in June. 

"With childhood cancer and the battle that these poor babies have to fight, we want to do everything we can to support the cause and work towards a cure for that," said Sgt. Kevin Martin, Lompoc Police Department. 

The department is relaxing its grooming standards for the month. Officers are typically required to shave every day, but during November, those who pay a $20 buy-in fee can grow out their beards. The money collected will be donated to childhood cancer organizations.

"Obviously, the guys spend most of their careers having to shave every day they come to work," Martin said. "So they are just loving the opportunity to see what they can do growing them out."

A "best beard" contest will be held at the end of the month.
