In Arnprior, an officer with the Renfrew OPP is shaving his head to raise money for cancer research.

Police say Detective Sergeant Sylvain Archambault has collected over $1,200 to donate to the fight against cancer.

Archambault managed to raise some extra money on the condition a local dentist was the one to do the shaving.

The OPP says police across the country often hold Cops 4 Cancer fundraisers.
