Township Police Join ‘Pink Patch Project’ To Raise Awareness Of Breast Cancer

Dorothy Reed of the Sister 2 Sister Network and FTPD Chief Richard Grammar shake hands in front of an FTPD patrol car that has been wrapped in pink in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Members of the Franklin Township Police Department will don pink patches this month as part of a department-wide fundraising effort for breast cancer awareness.

The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort among the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and public safety organizations around the country, according to the group’s Facebook page. The goal of the project is to “to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease,” according to the page.

The program centers on the officer’s uniform patches, which have been redesigned in a vibrant pink color.

The FTPD went one step further, wrapping a (formerly) undercover car in “bubblegum pink” for the month.

Officers buy the patches, and other merchandise is available for sale, the proceeds of which will go to the Sister 2 Sister Network, a township-based organization dedicated to helping women who are going through breast cancer treatment.

The pink patrol car will be placed throughout the township at various events, according to a press release from the FTPD. On select days during October, the car will be parked at the Corner cafe & Grill at DeMott Lane and Amwell Road and the Stage House Tavern on Amwell Road.

The Franklin Reporter & Advocate live streamed the pink car’s debut, and also talked to representatives from the FTPD and Sister2 Sister Network:
