DECATUR -- The Macon County Sheriff's Department is looking different; hairy even! They're growing their beards out for "No Shave November."

It's something which goes against department policy, but it's for a good cause. 60 men signed up to donate at least $30 for a cancer research fundraiser. The department lost two officers to cancer last year.

So far, it's surpassed its goal of $1,000 by 100%! It's already up to $2,000.
