October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Autauga County Sheriff's Office went all out in support for the cause, starting from the top down.

Sheriff Sedinger accepted the nomination to be a Real Men Wear Pink participant. To go along with this theme, he paid to have

one of the spare cars painted Pink!

It was on display at National Night Out on Oct 3, 2017, and could be seen on patrol throughout the weeks of October.

To help with the campaign, a "Pink Wall" was filling up all month with ribbons that were purchased for $1.00 donation.

The Sheriff also stopped by the Central Alabama Electric Coop Office to take a photo with their Pink hard hats.

Thanks

to all the Officers and Staff that work hard to make the Autauga County Sheriff's Department the best it can be.
