LBPD Pink Patch
What is the Pink Patch Project?
The #PinkPatchProject is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs' Association and several public safety agencies in Los Angeles County and beyond. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer's uniform patch. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency specifically for the #PinkPatchProject campaign. Officers at each of the participating agencies will wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms for the entire month of October each year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.

Laguna Beach Police, Fire and Marine Safety Participate in the Pink Patch Project
The Laguna Beach Police, Fire, and Marine Safety Departments joined forces to raise money for breast cancer awareness through participation in the Pink Patch Project.
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between public safety departments across the country, in a fundraising effort centered on the sale of vibrant pink versions of each of the public safety department’s uniform patches. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency, specifically for the Pink Patch Project campaign. Members of the participating agencies wear these pink patches on their uniforms for the entire month of October, which is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
Through the combined effort of each of the City of Laguna Beach Public Safety Departments, a total of $4200 was raised and will be donated to the local Laguna Beach Community Clinic. The money donated will be used to provide mammograms and breast exams for men and/or women who cannot afford it. The Laguna Beach Fire Department raised an additional $840, which will be donated to The Firefighter Cancer Support Network.
Our Mission is to continue to raise money and bring awareness to this important cause. All Pink Patch items will continue to be available both online and at the front counter of the Laguna Beach Police Department. Check out our website at www.lbpdpinkpatch.com.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY
In 2019, The Laguna Beach Police Department joined forces with the Pink Patch Project in an effort to raise money for breast cancer awareness. In this day in age, it's sad to say that almost everyone either knows or is aware of someone who has been affected by this disease. After months of planning and organizing, our unique and one of a kind patch was created. Our hope is to be able to make an impact within our small community and to help those who may not have support or money to fight this disease. We are excited to announce our partnership with the Laguna Beach Community Clinic. Money raised through sales of our Pink Patch items will be used to fund breast exams and mammograms for those who are unable to afford them.
Pink Patch items can be purchased at the front counter of the Laguna Beach Police Department or through this site. Keep an eye out for new items coming soon. Questions may be sent to email@example.com.
