For Breast Cancer Awareness Month the Redmond Police Department will be participating in the nationwide campaign, Pink Patch Project.
Pink Patch Project is a national effort where law enforcement officers wear a pink version of their agency’s shoulder patch. The purpose of the campaign is to promote public awareness in the fight against breast cancer, while supporting breast cancer research organizations.
“We are proud to partner with other agencies to show our support for the millions who are affected by breast cancer,” said Chief Darrell Lowe.
For the month of October, Redmond police officers and professional staff have the option to wear pink versions of the Redmond police patch. The department has been participating in the Pink Patch Project since 2020.
The public may purchase commemorative shoulder patches, hat patches, lapel pins and challenge coins for $10 each throughout the month. According to RPD, all proceeds will go to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to benefit research and treatment of breast cancer.
To purchase pink patch items, individuals should specify their desired items and mailing address, and send a check to the Redmond Police Foundation at:
