Cincinnati Police Are Wearing Pink Badges For Breast Cancer Awareness
The Cincinnati Police Department has received an upgrade to their uniform. A new splash of color will be available, thanks to pink badges and patches and new hats that will be available. This is part of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign.
The updates to the uniform will be seen throughout the department for the rest of September and October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The new look was showcased on Wednesday by chief Elliott Isaac, saying that many in the department were all too familiar with breast cancer.
A 31 year veteran of the Cincinnati Police Department, Pamela McMillan recently beat cancer.
“Oh beautiful, amazing, so marvelous … I love it on them, I really do. In the badges, especially,” she said when she saw the new look on Wednesday.
The badges are only part of what the police are doing. On October 5, a full pink fashion show will be put on by the officers to raise money for those affected by breast cancer.
