Good Morning Jackson! The Jackson Police Department is joining forces with the American Cancer Society to lock up Cancer during National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
During the month of October, which is breast cancer awareness month, JPD will be honoring breast cancer patients and survivors by wearing pink badges, the chosen color of breast cancer awareness. Additionally we will be handing out information on the local Breast Cancer Walk, to be held in North Conway on October 15th. Members of the force will also participate in the walk.
"Many lives are effected by breast cancer, including the families of agency members, we wanted to send a tangible and visible message that we support everyone touched by this disease".
The idea was first brought up by Patrol Officer Ryan McDonald, whose mother is a survivor. "The entire Department felt it was a great idea. We all have wives, Moms and daughters that we want healthy ". Please keep Cancer research and the efforts of the American Cancer Society in your thoughts during Breast Cancer Awareness month. If you can, please support or contribute to the local Cancer Walk Sunday October 15th in North Conway. We here at tbe Jackson Pilice Department support safe streets and healthy living for all our residents and visitors.
