PLYMOUTH – The police department is recognizing National Breast Cancer Awareness Month during October by going “Pink.”
The annual campaign is to increase the awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
Plymouth police officers will have the option of wearing pink police patches while on duty this month. The pink patches will hopefully not only bring awareness to the disease but serve as a reminder for women to get their annual mammogram.
The police department is asking for the public’s help in reaching a fundraising goal of $5,000 to support research and combat the disease.
The public can purchase “Pink” patches at the Plymouth Police Department, located at 80 Main St., Terryville, Conn., for a minimum donation of $10. All proceeds will be donated. For more information, call Sgt. Cesar Beiros at 860-589-7779.
