Pella Police Department News

Pella Police Officers may look a little different during the month of November as they grow beards to raise funds for a good cause. Participating officers have donated money to the "Holiday Heroes" program in order to participate in “No-Shave November”. "Holiday Heroes" is a program where area kids are selected to go on a shopping trip before Christmas with a Pella Police Officer or Pella Fire Fighter. This will be the 2nd year of the program. Officers of the department are not normally allowed to grow facial hair. We have loosened up the policy restrictions this November for officers to give back to their community while having a little fun.
