MSP Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Oct. 01, 2013
With five breast cancer survivors, all associated with State Police, looking on, the first State Police cancer awareness license plate was attached to a Maine State Police cruiser on Monday.
Colonel Robert Williams, Chief of the State Police said his department's marked police cruisers will display the plate during October -- Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The plates were purchased by the Maine State Police Trooper's Association and will later be auctioned off as collector's items by the Maine Cancer Foundation, with the proceeds benefiting three Maine cancer groups. Colonel Williams said, "State Police is pleased to participate in this effort to honor the many lives lost each year and to promote the importance of early detection."
