During the month of October, employees of the Manhattan Beach Police Department will be demonstrating their support of breast cancer
awareness by wearing pink shoulder patches on their uniforms. The
traditional blue and gold patch has been modified to include a pink sun,
lettering and border.
Chief of Police Eve R. Irvine said about the program, “The members of the Manhattan Beach Police Department join millions of others around this world to bring awareness to this horrible disease. And, to every breast cancer survivor and those who are currently in battle, we want you to know that we've got your back.”
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an
annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people
are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do
the same. Read more about breast cancer awareness at the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
