NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It's become an annual competition, you could even say a blood battle, among Philadelphia's police, fire and prison departments.
The american red cross was once again holding its Philadelphia boots and badges blood drive.
It's a friendly contest with a serious purpose.
The departments compete to see who can recruit the most eligible blood donors.
Here at the police training academy in the northeast, a number of officers rolled up their sleeves to give.
In fact last year the police rank and file won the competition, by recruiting 177 donors.
