A notice from the Orange Police Department:
Orange residents may notice some scruffy police officers this month.
The OPD Police Union came to police administrators in October and asked that grooming standards be relaxed to allow beards for the month of November for a good cause.
The Union is raising money for the Tommy Fund in Chloe Clemens’ name. Chloe is a local toddler battling cancer. Her father and grandfather are long time Orange residents and businessmen.
Each officer must donate an initial $50 to participate and are encouraged to raise more donations as the month goes on. The Police Union has agreed to match donations up to $1000 but union President James Kline said they may raise that amount.
The Orange Police are proud to support such a worthy cause as the Tommy Fund. Donations may be dropped off at Police Headquarters. Checks should be made payable to the Orange Police Union with “Tommy Fund” or “Chloe.”
Donations can also be made directly to the Tommy Fund at http://tommyfund.org/donate/

NOTE: The participating officers must keep their beards neat, so we will not see any ZZ TOP growth out there. And the participating officers must shave at the end of November.
