Dover police officers will be sporting a new look for the months of September and October. In partnership with the Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P.) Lodge 20 (Middletown Police), the Dover Police Department is allowing officers to grow facial hair as a fundraiser for M/Sgt. Mark MIller who has grade 3 astrocytoma, a very rare form of brain cancer. Officers who wish to participate must contribute $30 ($1 per day) that will directly benefit M/Sgt. Miller’s fight against cancer.
Participating officers must adhere to the following grooming standards for the month of November:
Beards, whether full or goatees, are authorized; however they must be worn with a mustache. Beards shall be kept clean, neatly trimmed, and present a conservative, professional appearance. Facial hair of any kind that presents any sort of faddish appearance is prohibited. No portion of the beard may be exceptionally longer than the rest, and beard hair length will not exceed 1/4 inch. The neck must remain clean-shaven.
