The "Pink Patch Project" coincides with "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" in October.
It is a national effort with many law enforcement officers wearing a pink version of their agency’s shoulder patch.
This is the fourth year the Nebraska State Patrol has taken part.
“We are proud to participate once again in this fantastic project,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Millions across the United States are fighting breast cancer every day. This coordinated effort by law enforcement agencies sends a powerful message that we support and honor those cancer fighters.”
Throughout October, troopers have the option to replace the standard NSP patch with a pink patch.
Pink NSP patches are available for purchase by NSP civilian employees and members of the public at local Patrol offices and online.
All proceeds go to the research and treatment of breast cancer.
