Posted at 4:14 PM, Aug 23, 2017

The Tampa Police Department is getting behind the wheel of a strong message to help raise support and awareness for breast cancer. 

“We’re unveiling our pink police cars. It’s a way to bring recognition for awareness to breast cancer and help fight it,” said Interim Police Chief Brian Dugan.

Starting Tuesday, two police vehicles outfitted with pink graphics will hit the streets as part of this year's Real Men Wear Pink challenge.

Community members are encouraged to post selfies and photos with the pink patrol cars on social media using the hashtag #TPDPink for a chance to win a prize. 

The police department will announce locations for photo opportunities with the pink patrol cars on its official social media accounts. 

Even though Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October, it’s never too early to raise support. For more information, go to
