Truckee Police Department

Hello October and Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Join our department & our county partners, Nevada City Police Department, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, and Grass Valley Police Department, in our collaborative breast cancer public awareness campaign for the Pink Patch Project. We have individual pink patches, a pack of all four agency patches, as well as a collaborative 2021 coin available. We hope that our small project will create awareness, promote early detection and treatment, as well as support for palliative care of this disease.

The Pink Patch Initiative started in Southern California in 2013, and soon became a strong program for public safety agencies to show their support. It is an initiative our agencies are passionate about and proud to promote. Our hope is that our pink patch uniforms help drive awareness, funding, and community support around this very important topic. Locally, we are collaborating the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation, which is where you can purchase your Pink Patch swag today.
