During the month of November, Copperas Cove Police Department officers and support staff will be participating in the Beard It Up & Color for the Cure fundraising campaign.

They will be joining several other law enforcement agencies in helping donate and bring awareness to DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) research.

Officers that donate will receive a conditional exemption from the Department’s dress code policy on facial hair and be allowed to grow a beard or goatee to demonstrate their support for the fundraiser. Female officers who donate can also receive an exemption on the nail color policy by wearing a color that best represents the form of cancer awareness that is closest to them.

They are also encouraging anyone interested in helping support this important fundraiser to please donate through our team at the link provided.

Anyone who donates $30 or more will receive a Cure Starts Now t-shirt.
