The Hingham Police Department was proud to support the fight against breast cancer with the sale of commemorative pink patches shoulder patches as part of the Pink Patch Project. This week, we presented a donation of $2,000 from the proceeds from the sales of these pink patches to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

The Pink Patch Project, which began in Los Angeles County, is a collaborative effort between 82 public safety agencies across the nation designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer, to raise funds for the fight against the disease, and to stimulate conversation within each community about early detection and treatment. The participating agencies wore their pink patches on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” this past October. As part of the program, each agency selected a breast cancer charity that serves the members of their community.

The Hingham Police Department’s pink patches were sold to the public with all proceeds collected for the Susan F. Smith Center Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. This week, Hingham Police Officers representing the Department presented the donation, met some of their staff, and were given a tour of their facility.

The Hingham Police will continue to participate in this program and will again wear their pink shoulder patches on their uniforms next October to continue to increase breast cancer awareness. We will continue to sell these patches throughout the year. They can be purchased during business hours at the Hingham Police Records Office and by mail through our website hpd.org/pinkpatch for $10.00 each. All proceeds will go toward a donation to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute next year.
