(Photo by Lynne Tungett) Originally about 25 Newport Police officers had signed up, but in early November, 60 out 80 police officers decided to participate in No-Shave November, a national initiative to raise money and awareness for cancer. Even Chief Gary Silva abandoned the daily shave, the officers said with a chuckle, and joined the team effort. Nearly $3,000 was raised from just within the department said Sgt. Carroll, the department’s public affairs officer. Half will be donated to the no-shave fund and the other half will be given to help fund the Police Explorers unit sponsored by the department.
