Duluth Police Join ‘Pink Patch Project’ For Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The public is encouraged to purchase patches to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
DULUTH, Minn. – For the first time, the Duluth Police Department is joining the Pink Patch Project for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
During the month of October, officers will be wearing commemorative pink patches on their uniforms, along with other law enforcement agencies in the state.
Police Chief Mike Tusken says it’s a way to raise awareness in conversation while patrolling the city, and the public can purchase a patch themselves online with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
“Many of things that we do are not just about policing. You know, it’s certainly about relationships, but it certainly is about supporting our community, so we think about our loved ones, our family members, our friends that have suffered from breast cancer and other cancers,” Tusken said.
