Police break policy (for a cause) in November

NORTH LIBERTY– Starting Nov. 1, North Liberty police officers have a short reprieve from the department’s strict no-beards-in-uniform policy. Participating officers will make donations to the annual Domestic Violence Intervention Program holiday toy drive and the department’s Shop with a Cop program.
The department has a history of supporting the Domestic Violence Intervention Program’s toy drive; members of the department donate annually to the program’s toy drive, and officer Juan Santiago has been working with the DVIP and its toy drive for more than a decade. This is the third year the department has hosted Shop with a Cop, were local elementary students partake in holiday shopping, wrapping and dinner with local officers.
The department won’t forego all shaving; they’re limited to a tidy beard or goatee.
