San Rafael Police Pink Patch Project
In honor and recognition of the upcoming Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October the San Rafael Police Department and San Rafael Parking Services will be participating in the Pink Patch Project San Rafael. This project is a quickly growing law enforcement public awareness campaign that has taken hold in Southern California, specifically Los Angeles County. The San Rafael Police Association is leading the effort to raise awareness about breast cancer. For the month of October, patrol and field personnel will wear pink and black uniform patches, in lieu of standard issued patches, to show their support for breast cancer awareness.
This is the third year of participation by the San Rafael Police and Parking Services employees. Several community partners have joined in support of this program, including Zero Breast Cancer of Marin, the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services, Kaiser Permanente, and Alex’s Dry Cleaning.
The commemorative pink patches are available for purchase through the San Rafael Police Association at the San Rafael Police Department Main Office, during business hours only, for $10 each (cash or check). Additional information is located on the following website: https://www.PinkPatchProjectSanRafael.org
The proceeds of patch sales will go to Zero Breast Cancer Marin, a local not-for-profit organization, with a mission to help individuals and communities understand scientific research on environmental risk factors and lifestyle variables that influence breast cancers. They promote disease prevention through targeted communication of evidence-based recommendations that support health and wellness at key stages of life.
