LFP Police Pink Patch Project 2019

Sunday, October 13, 2019

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative 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.

In 2015, the Irwindale Police Department in California ran with the idea and sold their patches to the community, raising over $20,000 for one of the nation's largest and most effective cancer centers, the City of Hope.

Chief Anthony Miranda took the idea to the Los Angeles Police Chiefs Association and 25 local agencies came on board.

Today, the program has expanded to several hundred partner agencies throughout the world and includes partners from police, sheriff, fire, EMS and federal departments worldwide, including the Lake Forest Park Police department.

These bright pink patches have been specially designed by the Lake Forest Park Police Department. Officers will wear them during October, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Pink patches and challenge coins are available for purchase at the LFP Police Department while supplies last: the patches are $10 each or 2 for $15. 

The coins are $10.

Your purchase of Lake Forest Park Pink Patches helps support Cancer Lifeline, a local organization that delivers a vast array of services to cancer victims, cancer survivors, and their families.

Checks should be made out directly to Cancer Lifeline; cash is also accepted.

Come down to the LFP Police Department on the second floor at City Hall and get your patch or pin -- or both. Lake Forest Park City Hall, 17425 Ballinger Way NE, Lake Forest Park 98155

Please take a moment to remember those we have lost and support those fighting the battle.
