Residents and visitors of the Town may notice the Purcellville Police Officers are donning pink tee shirts under their navy blue uniforms. This is in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to show solidarity for all those who struggle with the fight against cancer and their friends and family who support them through the fight. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide.
Chief McAlister states, “We are part of the community and we wanted to step up in a small way to show we care, and my hope is that by placing a focus on cancer, more people may take the time to visit their doctors for annual exams. This gives a better chance of catching cancer early and hopefully getting a better diagnosis.”
