The Jefferson Township Police Department (JTPD) is participating in the Pink Patch Project, which is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs' Association (LACPCA) and 175+ public safety agencies throughout the nation designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against this disease.
Beginning October 1, 2019, Pink Patches and Pink Patch t-shirts will be available for sale to the public. You may purchase yours by filling out/submitting an order form, or these items will also be for sale at all of the Jefferson Police community events, like
- Coffee with a Cop, Ice Cream with a Cop, etc., during the month of October, with proceeds going to Carol W. & Julius A. Ripple Breast Center, at the Carol G. Simon
Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center. Order forms are required and can be found on the JTPD website (www.jeffersonpolice.com) or can be picked up at police headquarters, 1033 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge, NJ. Please join JTPD in the fight against breast cancer!
From October 1 to October 31, sworn officers of the Jefferson Township Police Department will be demonstrating their support for the fight against breast cancer by wearing pink shoulder patches on their uniforms, and police civilian employees will be wearing pink golf shirts embroidered with a smaller version of the pink patch. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.
JTPD Pink Patches are $10 and Pink Patch t-shirts are $20 until all stock runs out. Cash or check only (payable to Jefferson Township PBA Local 190) - proceeds will be donated to the Carol W. & Julius A. Ripple Breast Center, at the Carol Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center.

From Pink Patch Project - Jefferson Township Police Department
The Jefferson Township Police Department is located in Northwest New Jersey with a population of approximately 22,000. This is our first year participating in the Pink Patch Project, and we already have plans and designs under way for future years. This year, all of our officers will be wearing a pink version of our shoulder patch on both shoulders of their uniforms for the month of October. A tshirt has also been designed and will be sold on our website, Facebook page, and at various community services events throughout the year. We have designated the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center (part of Morristown Medical Center) as the recipient of 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the patches and tshirts.
