October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

RPD Breast Cancer Awareness Car Unit

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress, but still have a long way to go.

For our part, the Riverside Police Department's Pink Ribbon police vehicle will be on display at several breast cancer awareness events this month.
