No-Shave November

2016-11-09-12_52_20-startThere was a noticeable change about members of the Ridgefield Park Police Department during the month of November 2016. As part of Chief Rose’s continuing efforts to foster community involvement, members of the Ridgefield Park Police Department participated in “No Shave November” to promote cancer awareness. Sworn and civilian members were eligible to participate in the event by making a monetary contribution toward cancer awareness and research. In doing so, neatly trimmed beards were allowed through the month. More than thirty members signed on for the event. Donations have come from department members and from those willing to grow facial hair, as well as other members by simply offering a donation.  This past year the Ridgefield Park Police Department participated in No Shave November as team “RidgefieldParkPD” and all proceeds from the event will be donated to honor Retired Chief Dieter Arhlich who lost his battle with cancer in 2016.
