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.
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.

During the month of April, we will highlight these efforts of support and encourage awareness and conversation among our community members.
