ROSE CITY PINK PATCH PROJECT
2022 is our 7th year the Madison Police Department/PBA No.92 has participated in this program.
Known as “The Rose City,” Madison is a suburban community in southeast Morris County, New Jersey, located fifteen miles due west of Times Square NYC.
4 square miles with a population around 20k, Madison is favored for its location, transportation network including direct access to Manhattan via New Jersey Transit Train and many other community assets. Madison’s charming historic downtown business, Madison is also home to Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and the College of St. Elizabeth as well as the Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey.
The Madison Police Department was founded in 1890 and is currently comprised of 36 sworn police officers.
The Madison Police Department and PBA Local No. 92 has been supporting and participating in the Rose City Tie One On campaign for several years. A few years ago then Police Chief, Darren P. Dachisen (now retired) noticed a police department participating in the Pink Patch Program via social media and felt the need to have the officers involved as an organization in supporting awareness of breast cancer.
In 2018 the Madison Police Department and PBA Local 92 have partnered with the Harding Township Police Department and Harding Twp PBA Local 340. The Harding Township police patch is also available for sale in Madison as is the Madison patch available at the Harding Township Police Station. The patches were paid for by each respected police union and all of the proceeds will benefit the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center. Carol Simon was a long time resident of Harding Township and the wife of former United States Treasurer William Simon.
