The Hingham Police Department is proud to continue our official partnership with the Pink Patch Project, a collaborative cancer awareness fundraiser in partnership with more than 700 (as of 2022) public safety agencies across the country. This will be our second year participating in this effort.
The goals of this project are: 1) increase education about the importance of early detection and prevention 2) raise funds to further research, treatment, and care of those who are or have battled cancer.
Through the month of October, participating police agencies across the Country will sell their pink patches with all profits going to cancer treatment, research and education. All proceeds from the sales of the Hingham Police Pink Patch will be donated to the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, uniformed personnel are allowed to replace their standard shoulder patch with the Hingham Police Pink Patch as a reminder of our commitment toward raising awareness among those we serve.
The newly designed Hingham Police Pink Patch (we also have a limited amount of pre-2020 Pink Patch and 2019 K9 Unit Pink Patch still available). The patches are $10 each. They can purchased all year at our front desk 24/7 or by mailing a check payable to the Hingham Police Department - Pink Patch Project, 212 Central Street, Hingham, MA 02043. Please specify Pink Patch you want. Any questions please contact Lt. Steven Dearth (email@example.com) or at 781-804-2205.
