Twenty-one Goshen police officers packed into Doug's Sports Cuts on Thursday, Nov. 21, to get their heads shaved as a way to support fellow officer Phil Rissot, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. The department has also helped raise funds to assist Rissot by creating wristbands, T-shirts and other items to sell, which will help with medical bills and transportation costs for trips to Indianapolis for treatment. A benefit is planned for Jan. 11 at the Elkhart FOP Lodge 52. The event will run from noon to 11 p.m. and feature two bands, silent auctions, a cash bar and a 50/50 raffle.
