These law enforcement agencies participated in the Beard It Up and Color for the Cure Campaigns to raise money for The Cure Starts Now-Central Texas to help fight childhood cancer.

For Beard It Up, officers donated $50 to grow a beard or $30 to grow a goatee. The Color for the Campaign allowed female officers who donated $30 to paint their nails a color that coincides with a cancer that has affected them or someone they know.
