Crisp County Sheriff's Office raises cancer awareness

The Crisp County Sheriff's Office is doing its part in raising awareness for breast cancer. Sheriff Hancock and his deputies are putting pink ribbons on the antennae of their cars.

They are also wearing a pin on their uniforms to show their support. The sheriff says its important to his agency after losing two members to cancer.

"It gives us an opportunity as an agency to put our name out there with something positive. We want to raise as much light and recognition to breast cancer so that maybe someone can find a cure for it," said Sheriff Billy Hancock.

According to the American Cancer Society, almost a quarter of a million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014.
