On Friday, January 8, 2016 at 9:00 A.M., Chief Singletary of the Beaumont Police Department, along with several other officers, will be at The Loft Studio in downtown Beaumont at 489 Pearl St. for a fresh shave. In an effort to raise awareness over the last 3 months, Chief Singletary suspended the departmental policy regarding facial hair to participate in the Gift of Life event. During that 3 month span, officers were given the opportunity to grow their beards, so long as they donated to the Gift of Life cause. Needless to say, several officers gladly participated and joined Chief Singletary in growing out their beards. Now with the event coming to a close, the citizens of Beaumont will once again see their favorite officers with clean shaven faces.
