SAN DIEGO – During the month of October, deputies have the option of wearing a pink version of their uniform patch. The patches spark conversation with the public and bring attention to the fight against breast cancer during the awareness month.

The hashtag #PinkPatchProject started with the Seal Beach Police Department in Orange County in 2013 and is now a nationwide effort. It is the second year the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is participating in the public awareness campaign.

For $10 each, the public can purchase the commemorative patches during business hours at the Deputy Sheriff's Association store located at 13881 Danielson Street in Poway. Call (858) 486-9009 for more information.

Pink patches sold to the public will hold no law enforcement authority and are meant to be used as a collectable item only. Money raised will be donated to Dr. Susan Love Foundation in Encino for cancer research.

The sheriff’s department also partners with community health center La Maestra to provide free 3D mammograms to inmates at Las Colinas Detention and Re-entry Facility for women in Santee.
