It’s October, and that means it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month! Back by popular demand, Hoover Police officers will once again be adding something pink to their uniforms: pink badges! We are all very excited about this unique change in appearance as part of our efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer. We also will have pink badges proclaiming October as breast cancer awareness month on our marked Police Tahoes.

“This is something that our Officers and this Department really embraces. The importance of breast cancer awareness, research and prevention,” Chief Derzis said. “We know that police officers wearing pink will certainly bring up some sort of conversation with the public. We want to start a conversation, and hopefully it does.”

Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
