Berkeley Police Department supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness, members of the Berkeley Police Department will be showing our support by wearing Pink Patches and badges to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer. In addition to the pink uniform patches, the Berkeley Police Association is also selling commemorative/collectible pink patches and T-Shirts to the public. The patches are different in appearance from our uniform patches (containing a ribbon instead of a star). You can purchase the commemorative patches for $10 and T-Shirts for $20 (limited quantity available), at the Front Counter of the police department (Monday-Friday, 8 am-2 pm). The preferred payment method is cash or via check made payable to: Berkeley Police Association. The proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Women's Cancer Resource Center (2908 Ellsworth Street) in Berkeley.
New this year, our Community Services Bureau created a limited community engagement Pink Patch to pass out during October to further support Breast Cancer Awareness. If you are interested in obtaining one of these patches stop by one of our community events during October. Visit our Community Engagement page on the Transparency Hub to see a calendar of upcoming events.
