Pink Patch Program
Through the sales of collectible uniform patches, public safety agencies world-wide are helping to bring an end to breast cancer.
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 a collaborative effort between the LACPCA and over 390 public safety agencies throughout the USA. The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches. Employees from the participating agencies will be wearing these pink patches on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in October. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.

“We as a police agency are committed to not only protecting our community, but also giving back,” Hoebeke said. “We’re extremely fortunate to work in a community that supports public service. When people come to us with these types of programs that do a lot of good, it truly sits with our mission and values.” - Joseph Hoebeke, Hollis PD
In 2019 we partnered with Chief Joseph Hoebeke of the Hollis, NH Police Department whose agency supported our program by selling 100 pink patches in just 2 ½ days! $1000 was donated to our organization and used to purchase gas gift cards for cancer patients needing assistance with transportation to their chemo treatments. A special thanks to Chief Hoebeke, the Hollis PD, and the community for making this program a great success. We look forward to recruiting other area agencies.
HOW IT WORKS
Manages their PPP program locally and independently, implementing their program in a way that best fits their department
Designs and obtains their own patches and supports the program at the agency level. Because each agency designs their PPP program to fit their particular needs, the agency can choose to employ all, or only some, of the program’s main components
Main Components of the Program:
Allowing uniformed staff to wear pink patches on their uniform in the field each October during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”
Raising funds to support a cancer-centric organization by promoting and selling their pink patches in a way that best fits their particular agency
