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, 2018. The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative public awareness campaign, in partnership with more than 150 public safety agencies nationwide. Its goals are designed to increase education about the importance of early detection and prevention in the fight against breast cancer, and to support breast cancer patients and 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?

At Plymouth Police Department, we have partnered with the Norwell Visiting Nurse Association’s Breast Cancer Support Program. All proceeds will go directly to NVNA’s Breast Cancer Support Program to provide services to families from Plymouth and throughout the South Shore.

The patches are $10 each and can be purchased anytime at the Plymouth Police Station, 20 Long Pond Road, Plymouth, MA 02360 (checks or money orders only – payable to Norwell Visiting Nurse Association (NVNA). You can also purchase them on line from our website, www.plymouthpolice.com.
