Police to take part in Movember

BUNDABERG police officers are used to dealing with hairy situations.

But the boys in blue will have a whole new set of prickly issues to deal with from next week, when they take part in Movember.

More than 20 staff from all areas of the police station will grow their facial hair to raise money for prostate cancer research and depression.

“As police officers, we see men and members of the community who are affected by these conditions and other men’s health issues,” Detective Sergeant Cameron Schneider said. “We want to highlight these issues and raise some money to help.”

He said while police officers from Bundaberg had taken part previously, it was the first time a formal team had been formed.
