SIOUX CITY | A police patrol car with fresh pink decals will soon be rolling around Sioux City in honor of cancer victims and survivors.
Police on Friday unveiled a black-and-white patrol car decorated with pink ribbons and detailed an accompanying initiative that will begin soon to recognize community cancer survivors.
The department encourages cancer survivors who see the vehicle out in the community to take a photo with the vehicle and the officer, if available, and send it to the Sioux City Police Department Facebook page. The photo will then be displayed with the name of the survivor to help encourage continued cancer awareness.
The vehicle includes a special pink ribbon decal on the hood bearing the name of family members and friends of city employees who have been diagnosed with cancer.
The car is meant to not only represent breast cancer, as the pink decals indicate, but all forms.
Police officers are also participating in "No Shave November" this year and donating funds in support of the June E. Nylen Cancer Center.
