NEW YORK STATE UNIVERSITY POLICE PARTICIPATE IN NO-SHAVE NOVEMBER, RAISE MORE FUNDS THAN ANY OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN THE U.S.

The New York State University Police (NYSUP) today announced the organization raised more money for cancer prevention, education and research than any other law enforcement agency in the nation. NYSUP also placed third overall in the organization category. Sixteen NYSUP Departments participated in No-Shave November and fundraised to meet the organization’s $15,000 goal by the end of November. As of Friday, November 30, NYSUP had raised $16,262– exceeding their goal and surpassing hundreds of other organizations across the United States. An additional $5,034 was raised by five NYSUP departments for No-Shave November who opted to use those funds for local charities in their respective communities.

Collectively, NYSUP raised a total of $21,296.

“The New York State University Police would not have been able to exceed our fundraising goal or finish first in the country among law enforcement agencies, without the generosity of and contributions from our college campus communities,” said Director Ryan Law, New York State University Police Officers Association. “We are grateful for the opportunity to support this cause, and with help from all NYSUP Departments that participated in this effort at universities across the state, we are happy to see these donations put towards helping those with the disease, while taking us steps closer to eradicating it altogether.”
