[ARCHIVED] Support the SHPD's Pink Patch Project

Pink Patch Project News Flash

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Signal Hill Police Department is proud to announce its participation in the Pink Patch Project. The project is a collaborative effort between law enforcement and public safety agencies to increase awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer.  It centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer's uniform patch, specially designed by each participating agency specifically for the campaign. Participating Signal Hill Police Department personnel will be wearing pink patches on their regular uniforms during the month of October. In addition to our public education efforts, we have the added goal of raising funds from the sale of Pink Patch Project items to go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure.

You can support the SHPD's Pink Patch Project by purchasing your own pink patch or a t-shirt. Patches are $10 each and t-shirts are $20 each (available in medium - XXXL). Purchases (cash only, please) can be made in our station lobby, 2745 Walnut Avenue, Monday through Thursday, during normal business hours. Please ask for Records Supervisor Samantha Torres. Last year, SHPD raised $1,000 for the City of Hope Foundation. This year, we will donate our funds to the Memorial Care Todd Cancer Institute, located in Long Beach. Thank you for your support!
