SAPD to Sport Pink Patches and Shirts During October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By  | 

KSAT reports that through the month of October, the San Antonio Police Department will allow their officers to purchase pink SAPD patches and pink undershirts to wear in conjunction with their uniform to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The proceeds from the patches go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

“I also think it’s a great idea to reach out to those who haven’t had their breast examination. Every year, women fail to do so and they don’t know the importance until it’s too late,” Sergeant Michelle Ramos told the news.

The photos of the patches on the San Antonio Police Department Facebook page show how wonderful they look when they’re sewn onto the uniform, and it has people buzzing in the comments. Some wish that they, too, could purchase the patch and support the cause. Julie Louviere wrote, “I’m a 25 yr , stage 4 breast cancer survivor I THANK YOU SAPD to bring awareness to this disease. Please let me know if they are for sale.” And one woman offered to sew on the first 20 patches free of charge.
