[ARCHIVED] Officers grow beards to help kids with cancer

Jacob's Heart

Please excuse their scruff but our officers are on a mission to raise money for Jacob’s Heart, a local nonprofit organization that helps children battling cancer.

Chief David Honda is allowing officers to disregard the department’s facial grooming policy, under the condition that the officer donates $100.  We have nearly 30 officers growing their beards until the end of September. Over the years, WPD has raised almost $10,000 for this organization.

Officers will present a check to Jacob’s Heart during their annual fundraising event, Kidrageous, on September 23.
