Pink Patch Project
For the first time in Corona’s history, the Corona Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project. The innovative project is a public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
Officers will have the option to wear the pink patches throughout October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
Support the Pink Patch Project
The community is invited to purchase their own pink patch for $10 at the Corona Police Department Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., located at 730 Public Safety Way. All proceeds will be donated to the Relay for Life program. Purchases can be made in cash or a check made out to the Corona Police Officer’s Association.
What is the Pink Patch Project?
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and several public safety agencies throughout Southern California. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer’s uniform patch. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency specifically for the Pink Patch Project campaign.
