Speaking of police and facial hair, Blount County, Tennessee officers were part of a mustache contest Friday, sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police.
According to Blount Today, Laramy Gregory, a chapter president, stated, “We’re trying to raise awareness. There have been 48 officers killed in the line of duty across the nation so far this year, and we recently had an officer with the KPD shot,” said Gregory. “This is just a goofy, fun way to bring attention to the officers and the jobs they do.”
Kudos to the FOP in Blount County for celebrating facial hair and the great job the police do. To read more about this event, please click here.
