Officers and employees of the Carmel Police Department (CPD) are once again joining together to raise awareness about cancer and gather donations during the month of November. This will be the fourth year that the CPD has participated in “No-Shave November.” All donations will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Chief Jim Barlow relaxed the department’s grooming standards regarding facial hair for employees that made monetary donations. Family, friends and members of the community are also welcome to donate.

Please consider supporting your favorite officer or squad. This year’s fundraising goal is $6,000.
