Ridgefield Police Department Brings Awareness to Breast Cancer with Pink Patches

Ridgefield is once again joining public safety agencies across the nation by participating in the “Pink Patch Project” this October.

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative campaign designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against the disease.  The project centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches worn on uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in October.  The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.  Ridgefield Police are joining 22 agencies in Washington State and over 500 agencies nationwide that are participating in the project.

2021 is the Ridgefield Police Department’s 4th year participating in the project. The limited edition 2021 patches are available for sale to the community for $10 each to raise money for the Pink Lemonade Project, a Clark County non-profit organization dedicated to the education, support and empowerment of those affected by breast cancer.

A limited supply of patches may be purchased at the Ridgefield Police Department, Ridgefield Hardware, Lava Java, Brewed Awakenings Ridgefield, and Taps Beer Reserve. Patches may also be purchased by mail: Ridgefield Police Department, PO Box 546, Ridgefield, WA 98642. If requesting a patch by mail, please include an additional $1 for postage, or provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

“The Pink Patch Project offers our Department an opportunity to connect with the Ridgefield community and show support for our loved ones, our family members, our friends and our community members that have been impacted by cancer,” said Ridgefield Police Chief John Brooks, “we are proud to participate in this campaign each year.”

There are a limited number of 2021 patches available, once they are gone they are gone – pick up yours today for $10.
