Ask the editor: Why did I just see a bearded policeman?


Some deputies are taking a break from the regular grooming requirements of the office this year. For the first time, Sheriff Rand Henderson authorized No Shave November for all Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office employees on behalf of the nonprofit Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The no-shave movement raises awareness of cancer through participants donating $50 each—instead of spending the money on the barber shop, shaving and grooming this November—to promote cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting for their lives.

LLS’s mission is to research cures for blood cancers and improve quality of life for patients and their families. It provides resources, information and support for patients, survivors, families and caregivers.

On Dec. 1, deputies will shave the beards off and go back to the sheriff’s office’s regular grooming policy, after which Sheriff Henderson will present a check to The Woodlands branch of LLS. Learn more about donating to LLS at
