JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - For the month of October, deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office will be writing citations in pink ink as a way to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Additionally, their female deputies have been provided pink handcuffs in lieu of the traditional stainless steel department issued handcuffs.

“The Sheriff’s Office wants to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s something when you realize that typically there exists no more than one degree of separation between someone you know who has or has had breast cancer. So, many in our communities and within the Sheriff's Office family have been personally touched by breast cancer in some way, which is why we found it appropriate to bring forth the idea of support through the "Stroking For The Cure” campaign," said Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
