Did you see Monrovia police officers or cars with a pink patch and wondering what it was for? Every October, public safety agencies participate in the Pink Patch Project to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research. They do this by wearing vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer’s uniform patch as well as selling pink patch merchandise like patches, tee shirts, coins and hats. In 2017, police departments in Southern California raised over $350,000 and $700,000 nationally. Starting this year, the Pink Patch Project went international.

During this October, the Monrovia Police Officers’ Association, along with the Monrovia Firefighters Association, Monrovia Municipal Employee Association, and Monrovia Employee Engagement Team, raised over $6,000 – 50 percent more than last year’s $4,000 donation. All funds raised through the program will be donated to the City of Hope for Breast Cancer Research. For more information on the Pink Patch Project, visit the Pink Patch Project online. Donate to the City of Hope here.
