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 150 (as of August 2017) 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 commemorative Hingham Police Pink Patch and the K9 Unit Patch are $10 each. They can purchased all year at our Police Records Division during business hours, 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. Any questions please contact Sgt. Steven Dearth (firstname.lastname@example.org) or at 781-804-2205.
