Johnson County Sheriff's Office Participates in 'No Shave November'


By Rachel Begle

JOHNSON COUNTY, Iowa - November 1 marks the beginning of several movements across the U.S. that focus on growing hair to raise money. Whether men grow mustaches for "Movember," or people forgo shaving for "No Shave November," there are many great causes behind the movement.

Among the area groups participating this month, are members of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office. They started the movement last year, but wanted to expand the effort. Deputies are normally restricted in their uniforms to be clean shaven or have trimmed mustaches. This year, Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek lifted those restrictions so the team could raise money for the children's hospital.

Sheriff Pulkrabek and Sergeant John Good stopped by the KCRG-TV9 Morning News Friday with more on their special month-long effort.
