Fort Fairfield Police Department Officers Sport Facial Hair in Support of Hope & Justice Project


Who says new growth only sprouts in the spring? If you live in the Fort Fairfield area, you may have noticed that some police officers are sporting a more rugged look for 2015.  Why, you ask?  Police Chief Bill Campbell and his officers are ‘growing’ their support for a future without violence against women in the form of beards.

Monthly, from now until April, these bearded men in blue will each donate $25 to the Hope & Justice Project, raising awareness about the issue of domestic violence and contributing cash to help combat it.  The Hope & Justice Project is the resource center for victims of abuse and violence in Aroostook County.  

Law enforcement officers in Aroostook County work closely with advocates at Hope & Justice Project to ensure the safety of victims of abuse.  It is the hopes of both groups that this initiative will not only raise awareness and funds for survivors of domestic violence, but will also strengthen relationships between officers and advocates.

To that end, the Fort Fairfield Police Department is reaching out to other departments in the County to show their support by taking part in their Beards and Badges fundraiser. “If each officer serving in a law enforcement agency in Aroostook County took the time they normally spent shaving to educate others about the issue of domestic violence in our communities, we could make a tremendous impact,” said Chief Campbell. “And the money raised by simply allowing our facial hair to grow will help victims of violence know that there is no excuse for domestic violence and that there are people willing to help them break the cycle of domestic violence.”

Be sure to keep an eye on the Facebook Pages of both groups to learn all of the reasons why the Fort Fairfield Police Department is passionate about ending violence and abuse and what exactly justice means to each of them!
