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.
