The Garden Grove PD is going all pink in October – at least partially.
To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all of the agency’s patrol cars will be adorned with pink department logo decals on both sides of the vehicles.
The decals are a small but visible way for the PD to remind women to take steps to detect the disease in its early stages, Garden Grove Chief of Police Kevin Raney said.
“Breast cancer is a serious health crisis, and we want to do what we can to support efforts to help find a cure for this insidious disease as well as to recognize the outstanding work being done to support survivors and their loved ones,” Raney said.
This is the first time the Garden Grove PD has participated in the breast cancer campaign, Raney added.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, according to the NBCF.
