WPD to wear pink badges
The Times


WESTFIELD - Some Westfield Police Department officers will be wearing pink badges as part of their uniform for all of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The participating officers have chosen to purchase the badges with their own money to support the cause.

Beginning a couple of years ago, the department began participating in "No Shave November" to help raise awareness for cancer by growing out their facial hair during the month of November.

"The pink badge campaign is just one more way we can get involved with our community on an issue that affects so many of our citizens," said Sgt. Billy Adams. "The badges are sure to spark conversation between officers and residents, which is one of the main goals. We are proud to help spread awareness and show our support to those affected by such a terrible disease. As a department, our officers come in to contact and/or are seen out in the public by thousands of citizens each day. If even one of those citizens is prompted to go get a screening because of this campaign, then that's a success."

In addition to helping raise awareness, donations will also be accepted. All funds received will go the city of Westfield's Relay for Life team. Checks can be made out to the American Cancer Society and dropped off at the Westfield Police Department.
