For the 6th year in a row, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office won the battle of the badges.

Nashville police, Davidson County Sheriff's Office and Nashville Fire Department, the American Red Cross, the Titans and Saint Thomas Health competed in Monday's event. 

People were encouraged to give blood from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. An awards presentation was held immediately afterward.

The team said in a news release that the Battle of the Badges has collected more than 2,385 pints (1,130 liters) of blood in the last 10 years. 

The sheriff's office has won every year since 2009, except in 2012. Even though the blood drive is over, there's still an emergency need for donors in the area.

Anyone can find a drive or donation center on the Red Cross' website.
