2nd Annual Beauties and the Beards

It’s November and you know what that means…the University of Maryland Police Department’s Beauties and the Beards event, also known as No-Shave November.

Traditionally, No-Shave November is known as a men’s only event. However, the University of Maryland Police Department (UMPD) wants all of our employees to have an opportunity to participate. By donating to our selected cause, all members of the police department will have the option to grow out their beards and/or paint their fingernails in wild colors.

This year, all proceeds raised by members of the University of Maryland Police Department in the month of November will be donated to the American Stroke Association. If you would like to donate to the American Stroke Association, click here.

So, if you see any of our police officers, staff or student police auxiliary members with flashy fingernails and/or full facial hair, it’s okay – they’re observing Beauties and the Beards month, and helping a great cause!
