The Franklin Township Police Department was the first in Somerset County to wrap one of its police trucks in pink and was joined this year by the Branchburg Police Department and the Somerset County Prosecutor's office.

The trucks were wrapped in pink as part of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign to encourage women to schedule annual mammograms to help lessen the incidences of breast cancer.

Later this month all three cars will be displayed at the Far Hills Race Meeting, Oct. 19. The race raises money for cancer research.
