PARSONS, Kans. — For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Parsons Police Department will be honoring those affected.
Officers will have pink mourning bands over their badges.
Agencies adopted the Pink Patch Project in 2013, from the Seal Beach Police Department.
“During the pandemic it’s estimated that 10,000,000 did not go and get their mammograms. And so now in our case, having that extra little pink ribbon on our badge it is also a conversation starter. And so we hope to get folks out to get those mammograms and hopefully be a lifesaver for everybody,” said Robert Spinks, Parsons Police Chief.
The Parsons Police Department has staff members who have been affected by this deadly disease, and they are actively raising awareness for its cure.
