Beards for Bucks October 2017
To bring awareness to the work of Child Advocacy Centers, a number of Police Chiefs have authorized their officers to grow beards, mustaches or goatees during the month of October. These officers are proud of the great work of the Child Advocacy Center and want to thank you for supporting them in their efforts!

We are especially proud of our Board member, Nicole Ledoux, with support from Chief Willard at the Manchester Police Department for launching Beards for Bucks statewide!  Over 55 law enforcement agencies are participating this year on behalf their local Child Advocacy Center.  We are so thankful to our partners in Law enforcement and members of the community for supporting the work of Child Advocacy Centers across this Granite State.
