PomonaPOA pink patchSupport Breast Cancer Awareness!

During the month of October the Pomona Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project to combat breast cancer by raising the public awareness.  Pomona Police offices will be allowed to wear pink versions of their department uniform patches for the entire month of October.

As part of this initiative, Pomona POA is selling their pink patches directly to the community for $10 each, along with lots of other items.  All the proceeds will be donated to support cancer research and treatment and to Pomona Valley's Robert & Beverly Lewis Breast Cancer Care Center.  

You can purchase your Pink Patch items at the front desk of the Pomona Police Department:

The Pink Patch Project Goals

The Pink Patch Project 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.

It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The disease can have a profound impact on the patient and her loved ones. It is a disease however that can be effectively treated with surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy.

At the Pink Patch Project, we have the simple goal of increasing awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer. In addition to our public education efforts, we have the added goal of raising funds from the sale of Pink Patches to go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure.

What is the Pink Patch Project?

The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between several public safety agencies. 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 Pink Patch Project campaign. Officers 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.
