The Adams County Sheriff’s Department is showing its support in a very unique way!
Adams County residents may have noticed a hot pink patrol vehicle making its rounds across the area over the past few weeks. It's an Adams County Sherriff's Department patrol vehicle that has been specially wrapped for Breast Cancer Awareness month to show support to those fighting cancer, survivors of the disease, and to honor those lost to the fight cancer. They worked with the local company The Artworks Unlimited LLC to design the wrap.
The vehicle is being rotated through the force with different officers scheduled to drive it each day. The car will be on display to the public next week when the department hosts a "Trunk or Treat" event at Ranum Middle School in Denver on Saturday, October 26. There will be costume contests and plenty of candy from local businesses and community partners.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Department is also participating in a donation program through Cops Fighting Cancer, which is a local organization founded by an Aurora police officer who faced his own cancer fight. Those who donate will wear a special pink patch on their uniforms for the month. And with November being "No-Shave-November", deputies can wear a beard for the month in exchange for a donation to Cops Fighting Cancer. Deputies are normally required to shave facial hair but are allowed an exception for the month if they choose to donate.
Cops Fighting Cancer works to provide financial support to cancer patients in Colorado and their families. This is the first year the Adams County Sheriff’s Office has turned a car pink for breast cancer, and it seems to be a hit!
