LOGAN, Utah — If you see a scruffy-looking deputy from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office this month, don’t worry – it’s for a good cause.

The Cache County Deputies’ Association is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit the Community Abuse Prevention Services Agency (CAPSA). For a $30 donation, deputies can get a beard permit, which will allow them to grow facial hair for the month of October.

“As deputies, we deal with the victims and offenders of domestic violence. This fundraiser gives us an opportunity to show our support for CAPSA and take a stand against domestic violence,” said Jared Fitzgerald, Vice President of the Cache County Deputies’ Association.

Under normal circumstances, Cache County Sheriff’s Office deputies can grow mustaches, but no other facial hair is allowed.

CAPSA teaches a Domestic Violence Awareness class to inmates at the Cache County Jail three times a week.
