Northfield Pink Patch Project
Along with 700 law enforcement agencies nationwide, the Northfield Police Department participates in the Pink Patch Project. The Pink Patch Project is a campaign to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against the disease, through partnerships between the American Cancer Society and local law enforcement agencies.
As part of this campaign, uniformed Northfield Police officers are allowed to wear a vibrant pink version of the department patch on their uniform each October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The change in uniform is intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the ongoing fight against this disease.
Beyond conversations, the Northfield Police department has unique ‘Pink Patch Project’ Northfield Police Patches and Pins available for purchase, with the proceeds going directly to cancer research and education through the American Cancer Society.
Pink Patch Pins are $12.00 each
First NPD Patch $10.00 each
The Pink Patch as sold to the public holds no police authority and is meant to be used as a collectible item only. The Northfield Police Department has the discretion to limit the number of patches purchased.
All proceeds will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society at the end of October.
