Plymouth Police Go Pink For October #Pink Patch Project

What is the Pink Patch Project?

The Plymouth Police Department is pleased to announce the official launch of the Pink Patch Project during the month of October, 2017. The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative public awareness campaign, in partnership with more than 150 (as of September 2017) public safety agencies nationwide. Its goals are designed to increase education about the importance of early detection and prevention in fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.

During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, uniformed personnel are allowed to replace their standard shoulder patch with the Plymouth Police Pink Patch as a reminder of our commitment toward raising awareness among those we serve.

How Can You Support the Pink Patch Project?

Each public safety agency collaborating in the #PinkPatchProject campaign has partnered with a cancer research organization or support group in their respective communities. At Plymouth Police Department, we have partnered with Cancer Support Community, a division of NVNA and Hospice. As part of this initiative, we are selling our pink patch directly to the community. All proceeds will go directly to Cancer Support Community to provide cancer support services and programs to families from Plymouth and throughout the South Shore.

The patches are $10 each and can be purchased anytime at the Plymouth Police Department, 20 Long Pond Road, Plymouth, MA 02360 beginning October 3, 2017 (checks or money orders only – payable to Cancer Support Community, SS (South Shore). Please note that we have a limited amount of these patches, and they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
