Maynard Police Department to Participate in No-Shave November
MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department will participate in “No-Shave November” to raise money for Home Base, a non-profit that helps veterans and their families recover after wartime events.
Each officer who wishes to participate must pledge at least $100 to Home Base, and, in turn, will be granted a month-long waiver from the department policy restricting facial hair growth.
Home Base is dedicated to helping post-9/11 service members, veterans, and their families who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, have a traumatic brain injury, or other related conditions.
In 2015, MBTA Transit Police started the “No-Shave November” first responder initiative and raised $15,000. This year, transit officers will not only be joined by Maynard officers, but also by members of the Bedford, Tyngsborough, Boston, Foxborough, Reading, Tewksbury and Watertown police departments.
“I am pleased to have the Maynard Police Department participating in No-Shave November for the first time,” Chief Dubois said. “This initiative is a creative way for law enforcement to support an organization and lift up those who have served in our armed forces.”
