Close shaves for cancer fundraiser

Men got a few close shaves and some women officers sacrificed their long locks for the annual St. Baldrick's event.

They shaved their heads in solidarity with children who lose their hair to chemotherapy.

This is the sixth year that members of the Chicago Police force have participated in the event.

In that time, officers have raised more than half a million dollars to help fund cancer research.
