MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – Tuesday was the final day in November for officers in Murfreesboro to get a free pass from shaving.
The Murfreesboro Police Department took part in No Shave November, an American Cancer Society fundraiser.
Five finalists were picked to try and grow the best beard. The winner was Sergeant Tim Higgins.
“It gives us a little break on shaving, and we have fun competing, so for the last couple of weeks we’ve been poking fun at each other and had a good time with it,” Higgins told News 2.
“Most folks out in the community really like it. I’ve had several comments where they like seeing us in a beard for a change,” the sergeant added.
Sgt. Higgins also told News 2 that no one is happier he’ll now be shaving the beard off than his girlfriend.
