Lake Charles, LA –


Sheriff Tony Mancuso announces deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be participating in “No Shave November,” a nationwide effort to raise awareness and funding for the fight against cancer. 


“Our policy normally prohibits facial hair; other than permitted mustaches,” says Sheriff Mancuso.  “For the month of November, I am suspending that policy for deputies who choose to donate and allowing them to forgo shaving while simultaneously raising money for charity.  We have also added some stipulations for the women, as well, if they would like to participate.  This is a fun way to build comradery and have friendly competition.  This will be the first year our department has participated and I am hoping it will be successful and something we can continue doing each year.”


CPSO deputies will be allowed to make a donation; the amount is up to them, in order to participate.  A portion of the money will be donated to the American Cancer Society and the other portion of the money will be donated to a local nonprofit, chosen by the department that raises the most money.


On December 1 all CPSO deputies will return to the normal grooming standards policy.
