November is back! The JCPD is putting down the razors once again for another 30 days along with other Law Enforcement agencies locally and across the country to grow cancer awareness. Uniformed and non-uniformed officers are being permitted to grow facial hair that would normally be against Departmental Regulations. Participating officers will donate towards our goal. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose. The JCPD, like many families, have current and past members who have had to battle cancer. Some, who sadly lost their battle. We challenge all of our Facebook friends to put down your razor and join us. DONATE NOW to our goal via the link below: This year's campaign will support programs at Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Each of the foundations listed are making great strides in fighting, researching, and preventing cancer. Put down the razor, skip the hair appointment, and let's make the 2018 No-Shave November campaign the best year yet! PLEASE SHARE

🎃How to keep your little monsters safe tonight:👻 FOR PARENTS: 👪 Don’t let kids trick-or-treat alone. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone! 👹 Don't run house to house. If you do have to run from a monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you. 💀 When it appears that a monster may have been killed, NEVER check to see if it's really dead. 🚘 Look both ways before crossing the street. Alert cars to your presence by continuously screeching or howling. 🍫 Only accept wrapped treats. Throw away any unwrapped candies, open candies or suspicious-looking treats. If it looks really good to you, tell your kids its contaminated and stash it for later. 🏰 Trick-or-treat in your neighborhood. Do not enter a home to receive a treat, especially abandoned buildings. It's probably abandoned for a good reason. Don't stick around to find out why. 🔦 Consider placing reflective or glow in the dark products on your children’s costumes. Dress appropriately, especially when investigating strange noises. Don't wear flimsy shoes and carry a flashlight, not a candle, preferably a heavy flashlight. 🔪 Avoid having children carry replica firearms which can be mistaken for the real thing. Beware of strangers bearing tools like chainsaws, hedge trimmers, or band saws. FOR HOMEOWNERS: • Turn on your porch light so children know it is all right to visit your home. • Hand out only commercially wrapped candy. • Never invite children into your home. • Keep pets away from children. • Immediately notify law enforcement of any suspicious activity. MOTORISTS: • Drive slowly and cautiously. • Look for children walking on the street, running, and darting in between parked vehicles. • Be extra careful when entering and exiting driveways. • Avoid using your cell phone while driving because it will cause a distraction • Never drink and drive. ADULTS: • If you plan on drinking make arrangements to take a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation by downloading the free STOP-DWI Have A Plan mobile app at • Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself. Count your drinks. Eat plenty of food, takes breaks, and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks • If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make safe travel arrangements to where they are going • If you’re hosting a party, offer non-alcoholic drinks and ask your guests to designate a sober driver in advance • If you see a drunk driver on the road, call 911 when it’s safe to do so
