About the Pink Patch Project
The Pink Patch Project is an innovative campaign to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against the disease. It is a collaborative effort between the LACPCA and over 390 public safety agencies throughout the United States. The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency's uniform patches. Employees from the participating agencies will be wearing these pink patches on their uniforms during "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" this October. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.
