The Cedar Falls Public Safety Department is proud to announce that they will donate $2,863.48 to the Beyond Pink TEAM.
During the month of October, the Public Safety Department sold bright pink versions of their uniform patches to raise money for breast cancer awareness. The effort is part of the Pink Patch Project (PPP), a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and more than 390 public safety agencies across the nation.
Public Safety team members were able to purchase and wear the patches on their regular uniforms during the month of October. They sold the patches to the public at community events for $10 each. Shirts were also available for $20 each. All proceeds went to the local Beyond Pink TEAM.
In addition to the pink patches, a police SUV was striped with pink and displayed the pink ribbons. The SUV was used daily by Cedar Falls officers while on patrol.
This was the second year that Cedar Falls Public Safety sold pink uniform patches. They will once again participate in this annual event in October 2020 with proceeds supporting the Beyond Pink TEAM.
