Local officers support Movember
A DOZEN cops from the Richmond Local Area Command have embraced the chance to grow a moustache without ridicule.
The local police, who go by the Movember team name Richmond 000, will shun their clippers throughout Movember with the aim of raising money for prostate cancer and depression among males.
Senior Constable Rob Clark is going for the handlebar look, while Senior Constable Mick Opryszko will embrace the lip to ear mo.
"I used to do the Crop-a-Cop (fundraiser) but I struggle to get hair nowadays, so I do Movember," the openly bald Snr Cst Opryszko said.
"It's something different and a good excuse to grow a moustache and get away with it."
The officers raised a few hundred dollars last year, a total he hoped to build on this year.
