Officers who contributed $20 or more are wearing special pink badges throughout the month, signifying their commitment to the cause. The money raised will go to the American Cancer Society to support patients and their families fighting breast cancer.
“The Pink Badge Program is a great way for our officers to show support for our community,” Assistant Police Chief Lucretia Rogers said. “I think it demonstrates our commitment to supporting families who are struggling with this serious disease.”
The Pink Badge program is supported by various law enforcement agencies across the country. This is the second year HISD’s police department has participated.
