Hoover PD and Breast Cancer Awareness Month
“Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win.”
It’s October, and Chief Derzis has once again authorized Hoover Police Officers to add something pink to their uniforms: PINK BADGES! We are all very excited about this change in appearance to raise awareness for breast cancer. In addition to the badges, we’ll also have pink decals on our patrol Tahoes proclaiming October as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.
The Chief shared, “This is something our Officers and this Department really embrace. We hope by wearing pink badges, we can bring awareness to this disease. It affects so many women and men. We just want those families to know: You’re not alone. We’re all in this together.”
Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved. The good news is that many can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
