Officer says goodbye to a furry friend



East Precinct: Vancouver Police Officer Cpl. Doug Rickard says goodbye to his mustache as it is shaved off April 2 at Bernie and Rollie's Barber Shop, 10323 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd. He and others had been growing facial hair in March as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

East Precinct — Officer Doug Rickard said goodbye to his little furry friend last week. The Vancouver police officer and others in local law enforcement had a “shave off” on April 2 to ditch their mustaches, which they had been proudly sporting all last month during the “Mustache March” pledge drive for the American Cancer Society. The mustache men raised more than $4,000.
