LIVONIA, Mich.Livonia police “pinked out” a patrol car in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“This patrol car serves as a way to honor survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and support those currently fighting this terrible disease and the progress made to cure this disease,” the department said in a release.

Officials said they hope residents will see the car and remember to get screened.

The car is scheduled to appear at several events, starting Saturday (Oct. 8) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Nehasil Park.

Livonia Police Breast Cancer Awareness wristbands can be purchased for a suggested donation of $10 at the events or anytime at the police station. The money goes to the American Cancer Society and Livonia’s cancer centers at Trinity Health and Beaumont.

October is dedicated nationally to educating people about breast cancer, the importance of early detection, and timely, high-quality care.
