Sheriff Authorizes Deputies to Wear Pink Badges for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Pink Badge DetailSeveral members of the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office are showing their support of the fight against breast cancer by wearing special pink badges. Sheriff Dana Lawhorne authorized deputies to wear the custom-made badges throughout October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Deputies ordered and paid for the badges themselves after a colleague, Deputy Amy Clinton, lost her battle against the disease this summer.

Many of Deputy Clinton’s co-workers on Team 1B at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center, as well as deputies in other assignments, are proudly wearing their pink badges in tribute to her and in honor of several other deputies who are breast cancer survivors. In the center of the badge (right) are pink handcuffs, a pink ribbon and a message reading “Arrest Breast Cancer” and “Unlock the Cure.”

The Sheriff’s Office is also leading a team in Deputy Clinton’s memory in the annual Alexandria Walk to Fight Breast Cancer on Saturday, October 26. For more information on how to join “Amy’s Warriors,” visit The Walk website.
