Clark County police departments participated in 2021 Pink Patch Project

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

During the month of October, five local law enforcement agencies in Clark County wore pink patches on their uniforms to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. The Ridgefield, Battle Ground, Washougal, La Center and Camas Police Departments joined over 400 law enforcement agencies across the county for another year of the Pink Patch Project.

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. 

Employees from the participating agencies wear pink patches on their 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, Washougal, and Camas Police Department’s pink patches are available for sale to the community to raise money for the Pink Lemonade Project, a Clark County nonprofit organization dedicated to the education, support and empowerment of those affected by breast cancer. 

“Many officers have family members and close friends whose lives have been impacted by cancer, including my own. This is a tangible way for us to show our support,” said Ridgefield Chief John Brooks.

The officers believe, “United we stand together in this fight against cancer.’’
