CONWAY — Once again, staff with Conway Police will be allowed to grow beards or dye their hair blue to raise money for Carroll County's Child Advocacy Center. 

During the October Beards for Bucks fundraiser, participating officers, dispatchers and staff sought sponsors online to either grow beards or dye their hair blue. This would normally be a violation of policy, says Chief Chris Mattei but he felt that the Child Advocacy Center was worthy of support.
