Many La Vista police officers are taking on a new look. Police Chief Bob Lausten says they have come up with a unique way to raise awareness and funds for an organization that helps many put food on the table each day.
Officers will not have to follow the department’s clean shaven policy and will be allowed to grow beards if they donate $20 to the Food Bank. Officers will have to trim necks and make sure their beards are well maintained. Citizens are also asked to take part by sponsoring an officer and make a donation to the Food Bank as well. The department is also holding a contest for the best beard and other categories.
The beards must come January 3rd.
