For the entire month of October, the public will notice a difference in the uniforms being worn by many members of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Employees will have an option to wear pink patches on their regular duty uniform for the period of Oct. 1st through Oct. 31st.  

The Fresno County Sheriff - Coroner’s Office is participating in the Pink Patch Project (PPP) this year as part of an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer.  It also supports breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. 

The PPP is a collaborative effort between multiple agencies throughout the nation. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by increasing public awareness and raising funds for breast cancer education, research and treatment using a common visual theme – the pink patch.   

Through a partnership with Metro Uniform in Fresno, the Sheriff’s and Correctional Lieutenants Association, Fresno Sheriff Sergeant’s Association and Fresno County Public Safety Association have all agreed to cover the cost of replacing patches.  At the end of October, employees will have standard patches put back on their uniforms.

Metro Uniform is donating a portion of the proceeds from the patches to a select charity.  Sheriff Margaret Mims, a breast cancer survivor, has chosen the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Center of Fresno to receive the donation.  Patches are not available for sale to the public.
