While police officers in Durango, Colorado still cannot have a full beard, they are now allowed to sport a goatee. As soon as the change was made, several, including the Chief of Police, have grown a goatee.
No word as to why the change was made or if full beards will be allowed at some point. This is a victory for men's faces across the country, as there are still many workplace bans on men's facial hair in the United States.
Special thanks to Fritch of The Fritch Show for the head's up on this story.
