Law enforcement agencies around the country participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, held each year throughout October.

Central Florida’s Leesburg Police Department is one of those agencies.

According to the Florida-based Daily Commercial:

One of the Leesburg Police Department’s black and white vehicles will roll out today with a new hot pink design. Leesburg Police Chief Rob Hicks, who recently took the reins of the department and whose wife is a cancer survivor, called it a “horrible disease” that affects many lives in the community.

… According to a press release from the city, the police motto “Serve and Protect” was replaced with “Prevent and Detect” to encourage breast exams and other preventative care to fight cancer. The new decal will be displayed throughout October and will be removed at the end of the month.

“As police officers, our No. 1 goal is to save lives and protect people. This awareness campaign is right in line with our core values,” Hicks told the Daily Commercial.
