The Carroll County Sheriff ’s Office is pleased to announce the results of this year’s No-Shave November. A total of 66 members of the Carroll County Sheriff ’s Office raised $2020.00 for the American Cancer Society (several donations were submitted after the attached photograph was taken).

For the month of November, Sheriff Jim DeWees temporarily removed the limitations on facial hair, stating “For the remainder of November, deputies are allowed to grow a beard, mustache or goatee.” Participating members donated a minimum of $30 each to the American Cancer Society, with all funds being donated to the local office of the American Cancer Society at the end of the month. The standard regulations regarding facial hair go back into effect on December 1st.
