Palestine officers poll community over keeping beards

Palestine police poll community about keeping beards beyond "No Shave November."

“No Shave November” may have come and gone but for one East Texas police department, it have only just begun.

Palestine Assistant Police Chief Gary Rayford said that what began as a fundraiser for a firefighter’s son diagnosed with Leukemia quickly became a way for officers to bond with each other.

“It’s been a real morale booster,” Rayford said.

Over 550 people cast a vote on Chief Andy Harvey’s Facebook page with 83 percent voting in favor of allowing officers to keep their beards.
