Milford police go pink for October

police-go-pinkMILFORD – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To help raise awareness and funds for research, education and other needs, the men and women of the Milford Police Department are joining the efforts this year by going pink.

Officers will be wearing  baseball style hats throughout the month in hopes to raise awareness, as well as having our patch on the hats altered to help support the cause.

Both patches and hats can be purchased by the public at the Milford Police Department at 400 Northeast Front St. while supplies last.  The patches can be purchased for $10.00 and the hats for $20.00.  These will be cash only sales with all proceeds donated to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.

Police Chief Kenny Brown said he hopes the department raises $3,000 or more in support of those affected by breast cancer.
