Pink Patch Project

The Union City Police Department is proud to participate in the Pink Patch Project.

The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness about the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. This campaign also raises funds to further the research, treatment, and care of those who are battling and have battled breast cancer.  

During the month of October, members of our police department will wear pink shoulder patches on their uniforms in support of this effort and to encourage awareness and conversations.

If you are a community member and want to help support breast cancer research, treatment and education with us, you can purchase a Pink Patch for $10. 

Purchase your pink patch at the front counter of Police Department or make arrangements for the patches to be mailed directly to you. These patches also make great gifts!

For other questions or to order a patch, contact Officer Russell Orlando at rorlando@unioncity.org or at 510.458.3727.

We are especially thankful for the great support received from West Coast Cleaners for making sure that all of our police personnel can transition to these pink patches seamlessly, UCPD police personnel and UCPD Police Officers Association (our first sponsors), and to all of our individual supporters.

Children's Patch Project

This year we'll be adding an additional patch that is close to our hearts. This new smaller patch is one that will represent our support of the fight against cancer in children. Each day, 42 families in the United States will receive the devastating news that their child or teen has cancer.

While the month of October is reserved for breast cancer awareness, September is a special month for raising money specifically for children suffering from cancer. You can support the Pink Patch Project by purchasing UCPD Children's patches for $10 each. As with the rest of our Pink Patch Partners, all proceeds from the sale will go to fund cancer prevention, treatment and education for children.

Please join us as we seek to make a difference by helping St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We are accepting donations throughout the year and you'll see our presence online especially during the month of September.

For other questions or to order a patch, contact Officer Russell Orlando at rorlando@unioncity.org or at 510.458.3727.
