The Pink Patch Project (#PinkPatchProject) is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. My agency is participating for the first time in this campaign.
What is the Pink Patch Project?
The #PinkPatchProject is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and several public safety agencies in Los Angeles County and beyond. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer’s uniform patch. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency specifically for the #PinkPatchProject campaign. Officers at each of the participating agencies will wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms for the entire month of October each year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
