Halifax County Sheriff's Office
Sheriff Fred S. Clark
Halifax , VA
The HCSO CARES “Cuffin' Cancer” Cruiser came about as an idea of Sheriff Fred Clark, Major Tommy Spencer and Crime Prevention Officer Dustin Francis as a way to reach out to the community and show that while law enforcement is a top priority of the Halifax County Sheriff's Office; the department does care about the citizens of Halifax County in other ways and wants to give back to those whom they serve. The “Cuffin' Cancer” Cruiser was a retired patrol car that was brought back to serve as a showpiece as well as a fund-raising item for the local cancer association in Halifax County. Along with the car, t-shirts, sweatshirts and ball caps were made to sell at events in the county with all of the proceeds going to the cancer association to help aid patients in the county with the costs of treatments as well as gas vouchers and other items that the association provides to those who are battling cancer. Pink was chosen as a color for the reflective decals because it is so widely recognized and associated with cancer awareness. However, the department also chose purple as the main color which represents cancer awareness in general. The original white color of the cruiser was also retained as a way to memorialize those who had lost their battles with cancer.
