The Fourth Annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive is set for August 21 and 22 at the Derby Welcome Center (noon to 6 p.m. both days). Members of the Derby Police Department and Derby Fire & Rescue participate in this blood drive sponsored by the American Red Cross. They give blood themselves and recruit others to do so for a chance to get their vote.

Everyone who donates blood (or attempts to do so) can cast their vote for either the police officers or firefighters. The department with the most votes receive the coveted Battle of the Badges trophy. 

The Blood Drive will be held at the Derby Welcome Center, 611 N. Mulberry Rd. in the Austin Room.
