Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — All the deputies of the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office are lending their support to the fight against breast cancer.
If you see deputies on patrol this month, you'll notice they're all wearing a touch of pink.
NBC33 caught up with deputies wearing their pink ribbons today at the Kleinpeter Substation off Airline Highway near Highland.
The officers are not just wearing ribbons - throughout the month, they'll be working with the Komen Baton Rouge affiliate to get educated about the disease.
Later this month, deputies will have a Breast Cancer 101 class to find out how to keep themselves and their families healthy.
