Getting handcuffed while promoting breast cancer awareness. That's the dream.

Well, that's the dream of the Greenfield Police Department in Greenfield, Massachusetts. They are getting all pinked out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and thought that should extend to their handcuffs.

Seriously.

They're really excited about it and posted it on their Facebook page:

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

Many of our community members, including some of our own friends and family members, have been affected by breast or other types of cancer.

Officers of the Greenfield Police Department have "gone pink" in order to raise awareness for the disease! All of our officers have changed their collar pins, which were blue and white state seals to pink and white pins which states "ARREST BREAST CANCER - UNLOCK THE CURE" surrounding a pink ribbon and a pair of handcuffs. Some of our officers have even replaced their on duty silver handcuffs with pink ones and will be using them during the course of their work day.



Hmmm. It seems like it could be hard to unlock the cure if they need to use those same locks on criminals.

Surely it's well-intentioned, but using a method of detainment to promote early detection and cancer research seems damn strange.
