You may have noticed that Chief Doug Roberts looks unshaven lately, or you may have seen other officers sporting beards and wearing jeans. No, it is not a new dress code for the Missouri S&T Police Department, but rather part of a fundraiser for the “Shop with a Cop” program. The police department is raising funds by participating in “no-shave November” and “Jean-vember” events. The Gamma Gamma Gamma chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and the S&T Optimists will help by holding a “Beard Off” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, in the St. Pat’s Ballroom of the Havener Center. Beards will be judged and prizes will be awarded.
During Shop with a Cop, children in need will go holiday shopping with a law enforcement officer on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Walmart store in Rolla.
To donate to Shop with a Cop, please stop by S&T’s police department office or contact Chief Doug Roberts. If you would like to participate in the Beard Off, please contact Melton Parham, a junior in nuclear engineering. Learn more about the Beard Off fundraiser on Facebook or order tickets.
