Public Safety Joins No Shave November

Public Safety is participating in No Shave November, so you may notice that some public safety officers have a little more facial hair this month!

During No Shave November, participants forgo shaving in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. Money typically spent on shaving and grooming is donated to cancer education and prevention.

Participating Public Safety officers donated at least $30 to be a part of No Shave November. Funds raised will be donated to Roswell Park Cancer Institute in memory of fallen Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner. If you would like to donate, please drop off cash or checks payable to Roswell Park Cancer Institute to the Office of Public Safety in Bosch Hall lower level. Public Safety supervisors will also accept checks.
