WOODLAND PARK, NJ - One in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including more than 174,000 throughout the U.S. this year alone.

This November, members of the Woodland Park Police/PBA Local 173 will be putting down the razor and picking up the cause by participating in the Grow & Give campaign with ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer. They kicked off their campaign today with a "before" photo taken of some of the officers taking part.
