NOVEMBER 6, 2019 - During the month of November, members of the Trumbull Police Department are participating in the “No Shave November” fundraising program by allowing beards to be grown by officers that are normally prohibited. The funds raised will be donated to benefit the Mary J. Sherlach Counseling Center and scholarship funds for high school students in Trumbull.
Participating officers must either make a $50 donation to grow a goatee, or a $100 donation to grow a beard. Female officers who wish to participate and donate would be allowed to wear a mustache pin on their uniform to show their support for the cause. The Trumbull Police Union will collect the donations and then distribute the funds accordingly.
The Mary J. Sherlach Counseling Center provides a therapeutic clinical setting for individual and family therapy, group therapy, and crisis intervention. These services are available for Trumbull residents, Town employees and students who attend Trumbull schools, as stated on the Town of Trumbull website.
The Scholarship funds will be provided to students of St. Joseph’s High School and Trumbull High School who choose to pursue degrees in Criminal Justice, and are awarded the scholarships based on academic achievement.
Officers are allowed to show their new look through the entire month of November.
