MORRIS PLAINS, NJ - The Morris Plains Police Department put down their razors and raised $1,000 for cancer research during "No Shave November".

Morris Plains Police Chief Jason Kohn gave approval for members of the Morris Plains Police Department to participate in "No Shave November". The rules of No Shave November were simple; put down your razor for 30 days and raise awareness and money for cancer. 

Now, that it's December, the officers will go back to being clean shaven. Joanna Pereira, owner and lead stylist of 18/8 Fine Men's Salon in Morristown says to go to an expert for the shave.

"Your hair is fully grown at this stage, so trust an expert to remove the facial hair carefully", she said.

No Shave November is a web based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness; and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, education about cancer prevention and aid those fighting the battle. It’s a month long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversations and raise cancer awareness. For more information click here No-Shave November
