Twin Falls Cops Make Big Donation After Growing Beards


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Mountain States Tumor Institute is very grateful for the Twin Falls Police Department and the City of Twin Falls.

The city presented a check for $2,800 to MSTI for prostate and testicular cancer research.

40–plus Twin Falls Police Officers and a handful of city employees left their razors behind to participate in No Shave November.

Each one donated $25 to join the cause and many of them went into the community to gather donations. Now organizers want to make this an annual event.

Ofc. Ben Hammer, Twin Falls Police Department says, "we basically want to do the same thing and make a good effort to get into the community and challenge the businesses, the people who normally support us on a regular basis even more."

The next time you run into a police officer, you may be lucky to see him with a mustache, but that's the extent of what's allowed for facial hair.
