Smyrna Police: On the Beat

October 1 - October 31 | 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM

Town of Smyrna Police Department,
On the Beat—to Defeat Breast Cancer!

Look for the Smyrna Police pink cruiser in your Delaware community throughout October! See current schedule of appearances.

Check out our photo album from the pink cruiser unveiling celebration.

Chief of Police Norman Wood and the Smyrna Police Department are on a mission to inspire communities throughout Delaware to get more fully involved in the breast cancer movement—while raising significant awareness and funds to support the work of Komen Philadelphia! On September 8, Chief Wood unveiled the Department's limited-time pink police cruiser, which will be On the Beat—to Defeat Breast Cancer for all of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October 1-31, 2017).

The On the Beat—to Defeat Breast Cancer Pink Cruiser has room for individuals to celebrate and honor loved ones.

Look for the cruiser in your neighborhood and take action with any or all of these great opportunities:

  • Make a pink-bucket donation to support Komen Philadelphia—every dollar makes a difference!
  • Celebrate a breast cancer survivor you know by signing the hood of the cruiser.
  • Honor a loved one lost to breast cancer by signing the trunk of the cruiser.
  • Participate in fun awareness activities with local businesses who have made commitments to being an On the Beat Daily Defender (see below).
  • Take a selfie with the Cruiser and post on social media using #SmyrnaOntheBeat to help generate greater awareness and remind friends and family to stay on top of their breast health.
