The Glendora Police Department is selling pink patches in partnership with the Los Angeles County Police Chief’s Association and many other L.A. County Police Agencies. This is all part of the Pink Patch Project.
The patches, which are the official design of the patches worn by our officers, have the pink coloring in support of cancer awareness for the month of October. The cost to purchase each patch is only $10.
If you have noticed, many Glendora officers have replaced their standard uniform patches with the pink patches for the month of October.
The goal of this project is to raise funds to further the research, treatment, and care of those who are and have battled cancer. Early detection and prevention are all part of the public awareness that the program looks to bring.
The Pink Patch Project website states that an estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime but it is a disease with treatment options if detected.
“At the #PinkPatchProject, we have the simple goal of increasing awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer”, their website reads.
If you would like to join in the fight against breast cancer by purchasing a Glendora Police Department Pink Patch, please visit the front counter of the Glendora Police Department or contact Corporal Shawna Celello at firstname.lastname@example.org or PSR Tricia Ayers at email@example.com
