Benicia Police Pink Patch ProjectThe Benicia Police Department is excited to participate in its first Pink Patch Project (PPP). The PPP is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chief’s Association and public safety agencies from across the nation. These agencies have partnered together in the Pink Patch Project to help combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and by raising funds for breast cancer education, research and treatment.

The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety employee’s uniform patch. These bright pink patches are specially designed by each participating agency explicitly for the PPP campaign. Uniformed members at each of the participating agencies wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and increase public awareness about the importance of early detection and the ongoing fight against breast cancer. The Department’s goal is to raise funds for cancer research, treatment and education through the sale of the commemorative pink patches.

The cost is $10 per patch, and all proceeds will be donated to the Solano Midnight Sun Breast Cancer Foundation. Patches will be on sale through October 31, 2018 and can be purchased online or from the lobby of Benicia Police Department, 200 East L Street, Benicia, CA.
