Somerset County Police Vehicles Go Pink in October
SOMERVILLE, N.J. - Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson and Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of County Detectives John W. Fodor announced that three police vehicles have been wrapped in pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Officials say the Far Hills Race Meeting Association, PNC Bank, and PBA Local #154 funded the wrapping of the “pink” police vehicles.
These three vehicles will be utilized for community engagement throughout Somerset County during the month of October.
The law enforcement agencies participating in this awareness campaign are the Franklin Township Police Department, Branchburg Police Department and Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office.
Prosecutor Robertson stated, “studies reveal that about 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime.
Early detection is a key factor in offering more treatment options and increasing survivability. Law enforcement is in a unique position to help increase awareness of this horrible disease.
This campaign is proof positive that our police officers are deeply dedicated to the communities they serve.”
A ceremony to introduce the “pink” police vehicles is being held on Friday, October 4, 2019, at 11:00 am, outside the Somerset County Historic Courthouse in Somerville.
Officials say all three vehicles will also be displayed at the Far Hills Race Meeting on October 19, 2019, and will be available for the public to sign and take photographs with.
Attending Friday’s “pink” police vehicle event are members of the three participating law enforcement agencies, the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Franklin Township Committee members, Branchburg Township Committee members, the Far Hills Race Meeting organizers, PNC Bank representatives, and several State elected officials.
