October marks breast cancer month and the Hamden Police Department is participating in a big way with a new vehicle.  Two Hamden patrol cars will be outfitted with hot pink or fuchsia color to commemorate the disease that affects about 12% of the U.S. population. 

In 2017 and estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. in addition to 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. 

Recently, Julia Louis Dreyfus recently announced that she was diagnosed with the disease and intends to mount an intense fight.  She was greeted with support from people in her industry including Kevin Spacey, Rosie O’Donnell and Anna Kendrick all stepped up to support her upcoming fight. 

The 56-year-old actress stars on the Television hit series Veep.  For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. 

According to HPD the idea was created within the department and it hopes to help raise awareness for the cure and prevention of breast cancer.   

North Haven Police have decided to wear pink badges though the month.
