Battle of the Badges Blood Drive

Help OCSD save lives

OCSD is participating again in the American Red Cross’ annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive competition.  The Battle of the Badges is a spirited competition amongst more than 200 different Southern California law enforcement agencies – each vying to recruit healthy blood donors at a time when donations traditionally decline. 

Every two seconds someone in America needs blood.  There is a constant need for blood across the communities we serve and that is why our department is supporting this life-saving blood drive competition.

Please join us and do your part by donating blood at one of the following locations:
