Officers from the Dubois County Sheriffs Department have wrapped up fundraising for “No Shave November.”
Local officers paid to put away their razors for the month of November to raise money to benefit the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition. Not only did they hope to raise funding for the nonprofit, but they also wanted to inform the public on the organization’s important mission in helping victims of crime tell their stories.
SWICACC provides safe reporting locations for victims of crime and their families with community-based multi-disciplinary teams that provide support, promote justice and help to prevent violence. Officers from the Dubois County Sheriffs Department work hand in hand with staff from SWICACC investigating incidents of child abuse within Dubois County.

Officers from the Dubois County Sheriffs Department were joined by staff from the Dubois Middle School, Dubois County Prosecutors Office and a local business that graciously agreed to help. This year’s funds raised by officers were supplemented by a donation of $500.00 from American Family Insurance, Kim Woodward Agency, of Jasper, Indiana.
A total of $964.72 was raised and all officers involved have returned to normal shaving.
The money was presented to Tammy Lampert with SWICACC on December 5.
