However, this month the department is suspending this policy in order for their officers to participate in the "No Shave November" program.

According to, "is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education. No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness." 

The Loves Park Police posted their anti-shaving actions on their facebook page.
