The Summerville Police Department is going pink for October to support their support in the fight against breast cancer.
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, female Summerville officers, and male officers that request them, will wear pink badges to honor those that lost their lives fighting the disease as well as survivors and those still fighting it.
SPD will also place pink ribbons on some police cruisers for the cause.
Officers can also wear pink undershirts, underneath their uniforms, throughout the month.
“It’s just our way of letting the community know that we fully know what breast cancer does to people and what goes through families,” said Chief Jon Rogers. “I don’t know of anybody who hasn’t been affected by breast cancer.”
This is the second year that the Summerville Police Department has worn, and driven, in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
