Metro riders may notice Metro Transit Enforcement officers sporting pink patches on their uniforms through the month of October. This is because they are participating in the Pink Patch Project, a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and several public safety agencies in L.A. County to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research.

The goal of the Pink Patch Project is to increase awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer. In addition to public education efforts, funds raised through the sale of Pink Patch Project items go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure.
