ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 29, 2017) –- The Anaheim Police Department, along with over 110 other public safety agencies, is proud to announce their inaugural 2017 partnership with the Pink Patch Project. The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the Department’s uniform patch. The Anaheim Police Association worked with police management in obtaining approval for the project, which allows Department employees to purchase and wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms for the entire month of October during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”  The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs' Association and several public safety agencies throughout the nation. These agencies have collaborated to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and funds for breast cancer research and treatment. In 2016, participating agencies raised an estimated $320,000, all of which was donated to various foundations that support breast cancer research and awareness.


During the month of October, the Anaheim Police Association will sell the commemorative collectors patches with all profits going to a local charity, Breast Cancer Angels. The proceeds will help provide direct financial and emotional assistance for individuals as they are going through breast cancer treatment. One hundred percent of all donations will go back to the community in which it was raised.  


To purchase the commemorative patches, visit the Anaheim Police Association online store at https://squareup.com/store/AnaheimPA
