WARREN, NJ - The Warren Township Police Department may be looking a little hairy this month. Some officers will be participating in No-Shave November. Warren Township Police Chief William Keane is fully behind the initiative and has suspended the department’s clean-shaven policy for the month of November to allow officers to participate.
“No-Shave November” is a nationwide program established in 2009 by the Hill family of Chicago, Il who lost their father to cancer. Since then over $2 million dollars has been raised and used for cancer prevention, education and research.
“The idea originated, within the Warren Township Police Department, when one of our Officers was diagnosed and treated for cancer,” said DSG. Ronald Roselli. “Following his successful recovery in 2013, several Officers have participated in this event to raise funds and awareness for cancer research over the past four years.”
Over that time, the Warren Township PBA Local 235 has also donated to various cancer charities, such as St. Baldrick’s Foundation and “Helping Kids Conquer Cancer” with the goal to promote awareness among the residents of Warren Township as well as family and friends to continue to raise as much money as possible.
