Westport Police: Pretty In Pink

The Westport Police Department is a longtime supporter of breast cancer research. Every October, they find an innovative way to raise awareness of the deadly disease.

A couple of years ago, for example, they tooled around town in a pink Maserati.

This year they’ve turned their patch from familiar blue to powerful pink.

Throughout October, officers will wear the patch.

All month long too, they’re selling the pink patches to the public as a fundraiser. The cost is $10 each, at police headquarters (50 Jesup Road). All proceeds will be donated to Pink Aid of Westport.

    Chief Sam Luciano RIP would be proud.

  2. Perhaps you can post this on Facebook, and other sites that reach further than this area and other police departments could do the same wonderful support

      The PD did post this on their FB page as well, and They told me it’s in other local media. They’re doing great work!

    Super nice, friendly, and helpful dispatcher tried to get them but was unsuccessful this AM. Call before going in to pick one up. They don’t have any at dispatch currently and the officer who is handling sales is on duty during the work week. Super nice, friendly, and helpful dispatcher tried to get them but was unsuccessful this AM.

    Love it!

  5. Wonderful fundraising idea. Thanks for sharing. I just made a post about my first time in OR during a mastectomy and seeing cancer for the first time. So great to be a part of the conversation and bring awareness.
