Over the past few months, the Evansville Police Department raised more than $5,400 that will be used to aid community members battling cancer.

During the months of September and October, EPD made an initiative to raise money for cancer awareness.

In September, the department began selling custom gold EPD patches to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. In October, EPD sold its custom pink patches to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, while also selling its "Cops For A Cure" t-shirts.

With help from Lawman Tactical and Siegel's Uniforms in Evansville, EPD says it raised more than $4,400 selling those items.

In addition to the local money raised, EPD says a few of its officers also raised money online through the American Cancer Society bringing the total amount of money to over $5,400.

With the funds that were raised, EPD made a donation to a local family battling childhood cancer. The department says the rest of the money was distributed between Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, Deaconess Foundation and Women’s Hospital, and the American Cancer Society.

The police department's gold patches, pink patches, and Cops For A Cure t-shirts are still available for purchase in the EPD Records lobby, which is located in the Civic Center.

The department says it will continue to donate the collected funds to local hospitals and families.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
