Law Enforcement in NRV Support Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement around the New River Valley are showing their support for breast cancer awareness.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and Blacksburg Police are selling patches for $10.

On the roads, each agency has a patrol vehicle that has pink decals and lettering.

The car used by the sheriff's office has already gotten some reaction from the community. A deputy who drives it says people have approached her about family members who have died from the disease.

"We hope people will make more donations to breast cancer research and maybe someday they can find a cure for it," says Sheriff Tommy Whitt.

The sheriff says the department will keep the pink on the car even after the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
