What is the Pink Patch Project?
Originating in 2013 with the Seal Beach Police Department in Southern California who wore pink patches on their uniforms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In 2015, the Irwindale Police Department in California ran with the idea and sold their patches to the community, raising over $20,000.00 for one of the nation's largest and most effective cancer centers, the City of Hope.
Chief Anthony Miranda took the idea to the Los Angeles Police Chiefs Association and 25 local agencies came on board.
Today, the program has expanded to several hundred partner agencies throughout the world and includes partners from police, sheriff, fire, EMS, and federal departments worldwide.1
We are happy to announce that we now represent the 357 Law Enforcement Agencies in Massachusetts that employ just over 19,000 police officers that participate in the Pink Patch Project.
