SMITHVILLE POLICE OFFICERS TO PARTICIPATE IN "NO SHAVE NOVEMBER" November 3, 2017 by: Dwayne Page Members of the Smithville Police Department are participating in "No Shave November" to raise funds for Saint Jude Cancer research. No-Shave November is a nationwide fundraiser for cancer awareness. All officers who choose to participate will make a cash donation. All proceeds raised will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. “At some point in time almost everyone will personally know someone afflicted with cancer. It is a privilege to work alongside fellow officers who care enough to try to make a difference,” said Police Chief Mark Collins. As the participants let their beards grow, family and friends are encouraged to join the campaign and become more educated about cancer prevention, saving lives, and helping those fighting cancer. "You will soon see some Smithville police officers that could use a shave, but it's for a good cause,” said Captain Steven Leffew. “Many of our officers are very enthusiastic to take part in the fundraiser. I'm very proud to work beside such caring people," he said.

UPDATE: Great news! Ter'riana Hill has been located, and is safe. Thank you for helping us spread the word!
