CLIVE, Iowa (CBSDFW.COM) – With October designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ll see many people wearing pink, even NFL players.
But this is different. The police department in Clive, Iowa debuted a pink police car.
Clive Police partnered with a sign company to design and apply the pink decals to a cruiser.
The decked out car is meant to honor breast cancer victims, survivors and those working for a cure.
“Everybody’s got some kind of connection to cancer in general, but cancer… is so impactful through all of our communities,” said Sgt. Mark Rehberg. “Everybody’s got a connection.”
Clive officers are also wearing a pink patch on their uniforms.
Locals can purchase the patches for $5 with proceeds going to a breast cancer charity.
