The Union City Police Department is proud to participate in the Patch Project.
It is the goal of the Union City Police Department to promote and educate the public about early detection, cancer prevention, and autism awareness. Through this project we can help further the research, and treatment and help care for those who are battling the effects of breast cancer, childhood cancers and autism.
If you are a community member and would like to support these charities, you can purchase a commemorative UCPD Patch for only $10.
Autism Awareness Month is recognized in April. The goal of this campaign is to help raise funds to empower, educate, and advocate for those who are affected by Autism. We hope through the funding of this project that it will help to enhance the lives of people living with Autism to become more empowered, independent and active members of our community. During the month of April, we will highlight these efforts of support and encourage awareness and conversation among our community members.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is recognized in the month of September. The goal of this campaign is to increase awareness, further research, education and provide resources and care for children and their families affected by Childhood Cancer. During the month of September, members of our police department will wear gold patches on their uniforms to encourage awareness and to support this important cause.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is recognized in the month of October. The goal of this campaign is to help raise funds to further research, education, and treatment for those who are battling and have battled Breast Cancer. During the month of October, members of our police department will wear pink patches on their uniforms in support of this effort and to encourage awareness.
Also available for purchase is our UCPD Pink Commemorative Challenge Coin. We are offering this coin in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This coin is an exclusive addition for that avid coin collector. Challenge coins commemorate an essential and honorable service, and they help people feel more connected to their community. These can be proudly displayed to family and friends or given as a gift. (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST )
