Police launch Pink Patch Project
Submitted By Union City Police Department
In recognition of Breast Cancer Prevention and Awareness Month, coming in October, police in Union City recently launched a Pink Patch Project.
The goal of the project is to raise funds to further the research, treatment, and care of those who are or who have battled cancer. To help make that happen, Union City Police and the Union City Police OfficersÕ Association jointly designed and produced a commemorative pink shoulder patch which all uniformed personnel will wear during October. The patches also are available for purchase by the public, with funds going toward cancer research, treatment and education.
This is the first year Union City police have participated in the event which is a collective effort of law enforcement agencies across the nation. The idea behind wearing the pink shoulder patch is to generate discussions about cancer and to educate the public about the fight against cancer and the importance of early detection and treatment of the disease.
A limited quantity of the pink commemorative Union City Police patches can be purchased through October at the Union City Police Department, 34009 Niles-Alvarado Road. The cost is $10 each, payable by cash or check.
