CEDAR FALLS — The Cedar Falls Public Safety will donate the $2,809.39 they raised in October to the Beyond Pink TEAM. The Public Safety Department sold pink versions of their uniform patches to raise money for breast cancer awareness. The effort is part of the Pink Patch Project, a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and 360 public safety agencies across the nation.
Officers and firefighters bought and wore the patches on their regular uniforms in October, and sold the patches at community events. In addition, a police SUV was striped with pink and displayed the pink ribbons. The SUV was used daily by Cedar Falls officers on patrol.
