The Plainville Police Department is located in central Connecticut, about 20 minutes west from the capital city of Hartford. There are 39 officers that serves a town about 9 square miles with approximately 17,000 residents. The department has raised about $2,500 dollars by selling the pink variation of their department patch. This has been done by people who walk into the department to make the purchase. All proceeds go to the Hartford Healthcare Cancer Institute at the Hospital of Central Connecticut-Plainville.
