What Are Those Teal Ribbons For?

Posted on April 19, 2012. Filed under: Sexual Assault Awareness Month | Tags: , , , |

Have you seen the teal ribbons on local law enforcement vehicles and wondered, “What are they for?” Teal is the official color of sexual assault awareness and to show their support, Farmington, Aztec, and Bloomfield Police Departments, along with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Department are placing teal ribbons on the antennas of their vehicles throughout the month of April.

After the education committee requested the agencies to participate in the teal ribbon campaign, the sheriff’s department constructed and donated the ribbons for each agency. This is just one of the many events that have taken place during the month of April to help raise awareness about sexual assault in our community.

The task force would like to thank the San Juan County Sheriff’s Department for donating all the teal ribbons and thank all the law enforcement agencies for participating in the teal ribbon campaign!
