Troopers to don pink patches for breast cancer awareness

September 3, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska State Patrol troopers are donning a new pink patch in October to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.

The patrol says troopers will have the option to replace their standard navy blue and red patch with a new patch featuring the patrol’s logo in pink and black.

Pink patches are also available for purchase by the patrol’s civilian employees and members of the general public. All proceeds from pink patch sales will go to benefit research and treatment of breast cancer.

The patches can be purchased online .

Col. John Bolduc, the patrol’s superintendent, says the Pink Patch Project is a phenomenal effort around the country to help fight breast cancer.
