Hooksett police beards serve a good cause
Officers pay $20 to participate and be a member of the police association. All of the money raised will go to the Family Services Department, which Bouchard said always needs cash on hand to help needy families buy things like toiletries.
“We don’t solicit for money while we are on duty. However, if someone were to ask anyone in the department about it, we are more than willing to discuss it,” Bouchard said.
“It’s all for a great cause, and it helps my family save money on razors, which means a better Christmas,” he joked.
Bouchard said that Decem-Beard is part of the effort of the Police Association to become a larger part of the community. “We just recreated the association last year because we wanted to be more involved in the community. We had a lot of officers who did volunteer work, but we weren’t operating as an organized unit.”
“We feel that a lot of times when someone needs a police officer it is for a negative reason. We want the community to be able to see us in a positive manner,” Bouchard said.
