In Sioux Falls you might change the phrase to "Real cops wear pink". Sioux Falls police are sporting their support for the fight against breast cancer by wearing pink t-shirts under their uniforms.

This initiative came from Officer Michelle Paulsen as a way to help raise awareness about breast cancer.

"My Aunt Karen passed away a year ago August from breast cancer, and my grandma is a breast cancer survivor. Also one of my cousins a breast cancer survivor. So it runs in my family and I know everyone has been touched by breast cancer," Officer Paulsen said.

Normally, officers wear a black or navy colored shirt under their uniform.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
