  • Break the Rules This Holiday Season

    Movember means mustache season, which is something special to those of us on the staff of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department.

    Ironically, it’s a time when we are allowed to break one of our own rules: no full facial hair. Thanks to my colleague Sargent Brian N. Niec, he started this special tradition several years ago. For a donation of $50, you are allowed to bypass the policy during the month of November and grow a beard to your heart’s content – as long as it looks professional.
