The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association (LACPCA) and more than 175 public safety agencies throughout the nation designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against this disease.
The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches. Monrovia Police Department employees will be wearing these pink patches on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” this October. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversations within the community and raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.

The Monrovia Police Department is selling their commemorative pink patches to the community, along with Pink Patch Project T-shirts, challenge coins, and other items. Proceeds from the sale of Monrovia’s commemorative Pink Patch Project items go to fund breast cancer education, research, and treatment at the City of Hope.

Throughout September, Pink Patch Project volunteers will be staffing a booth at the Los Angeles County Fair. Pink patches and other related items will be available for sale to the public with the proceeds going to the various hospitals and organizations we are supporting. Please stop by the Pink Patch Project booth and join us in the fight against breast cancer!

When: Sept. 1 – 24, 2017

Where: Los Angeles County Fair (1101 W. McKinley Ave, Pomona, CA 91768), Exhibit Hall #4
