IPD goes pink!

October is upon us and the Indio Police Department will once again raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research through participation in the Pink Patch Project. This project partners with law enforcement agencies across the country to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.

For the month of October all uniformed Indio Police Department staff are authorized to wear pink patches, chevrons and hash marks in place of the traditional blue patches on their uniforms in return for making a monetary donation toward the Pink Patch Project. Also, after receiving many requests for its return, IPD is excited to announce the pink Indio Police unit will be out on the streets for the month of the October again this year. The pink unit design has had a drastic makeover for 2020, so keep an eye out for it in our community!

The Indio Police Department would also like to thank the Indio Police Officers Association for their generosity in designing and supplying all of the pink patches. Because of this, no public funds were used.
