Mo the go for police
DALBY Police officers are doing their part this month to raise awareness for men's health, and having some fun while they're at it.
The men in uniform are participating in Movember, an annual event to help end the stigma around blokes and their mental, emotional and physical health.
Men on average suffer a shorter life expectancy than women, with women outliving men by approximately six years.
The causes for this are largely preventable, so Movember emphasises the importance of regular check-ups for prostate, testicular and skin cancers, as well as promoting active and healthy lifestyles.
Senior Constable Lindsay Small said most of the male officers are giving Movember a crack this year.
"Just about the whole station is involved and growing a dirty mo. Some of the you can't really see but they're giving it a go,” Const Small said.
A 'Mogistrates Court' has been set up in Dalby Police Station where officers are fined by the Mogistrate Sergeant Dave Tierney for various felonies within the police station.
Fines include officers failing to wash up their dishes.
All funds raised will go to the Movember Foundation.
