What is the Pink Patch Project?
Chief Scott C. Allen and The East Bridgewater Police Department is pleased to announce the official launch of the Pink Patch Project during the month of October, 2018. The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative public awareness campaign, in partnership with more than 150 public safety agencies nationwide. Its goals are designed to increase education about the importance of early detection and prevention in the fight against breast cancer, and to support breast cancer patients and research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, uniformed personnel are allowed to replace their standard shoulder patch with the East Bridgewater Police Pink Patch as a reminder of our commitment toward raising awareness among those we serve.
