BTPD Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

The Bordentown Township Police Department will be “going pink” during October to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Officers will be wearing pink BTPD patches on their uniforms to encourage conversation with the community and raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease. 

The police department’s charity fund supported this initiative with a $1000 donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Central and South Jersey.

This disease is very personal to several of our officers, and we will proudly wear these patches to honor and support those affected.
