The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort among numerous public safety agencies around the nation to increase awareness about the life saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer.
The Hayward Police Department has joined this cause by designing a special uniform patch. Our officers will be wearing this patch during the month of October and we will also make it available for purchase to the public.
The Hayward Police Officer’s Association is coordinating this effort and all proceeds will benefit the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. This local organization supports all individuals healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of their financial status.

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The disease can have a profound impact on the patient and her loved ones. It is a disease however that can be effectively treated with surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy.
At the Pink Patch Project, we have the simple goal of increasing awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer. In addition to our public education efforts, we have the added goal of raising funds from the sale of Pink Patches to go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure.

The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between several public safety agencies. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer's uniform patch. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency specifically for the Pink Patch Project campaign. Officers will wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms for the entire month of October each year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
