Campton Police Officers Growing Beards in Support of local Child Advocacy Centers

New Hampshire’s Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) support child victims of physical and sexual abuse, as well those children who have witnessed violent crimes. CACs support these children in the early stages of criminal investigations by offering forensic interview services and by connecting them to important community resources.

To bring awareness to the cause a number of Grafton and Sullivan County Police Chiefs have authorized their officers who have pledged support to our local Child Advocacy Center to grow beards, mustaches or goatees; or nails (for female officers) during the month of October. Campton PD is proud of the great work of the Grafton and Sullivan County Child Advocacy Centers and want to thank YOU for supporting them in their efforts!

Please click the link below to make your donation to the Grafton & Sullivan County CAC
