NEVADA CITY, Calif. October 16, 2017 – The Nevada City Police Department proudly joins forces with Riebes Auto Parts in support of the NCPD’s Pink Patch Project, a collaborative Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser, in partnership with other Law Enforcement Agencies across the country. Through the month of October, participating police agencies across the country will sell their pink patches with all profits going to cancer treatment, research and education.

On October 18th 2017 Riebes will host a Tri-Tip Luncheon from 11AM to 1PM at their Nevada City location, 535 Searls Ave. Nevada City. Chief Tim Foley and other officers will be on hand to help serve lunch. You can make a donation at that time to the NCPD Breast Cancer Campaign and purchase a specially designed NCPD pink patch.

All proceeds from the sales of the Nevada City Police Pink Patch will be donated to the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation/Barbara Schmidt Millar Fund, which will be distributed directly to women and men of Nevada County who are in need of mammograms. In addition, a scholarship established in Barbara’s honor will be awarded to a female high school graduate of Nevada County that are pursuing education in the healthcare field

The goals of this project are to increase education about the importance of early detection and prevention, and to raise funds to further research, treatment, and care of those who are currently battling breast cancer.

During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, uniformed personnel are allowed to replace their standard shoulder patch with the Nevada City Police Pink Patch, wear a pink t-shirt or highlighted pink uniform cap as a reminder of our commitment toward raising awareness among those we serve.

Patches are available for $10.00 at the front counter of Nevada City Police Department, located in City Hall at 317 Broad St. Nevada City. Office hours Monday-Friday from 8am-12pm and 1pm-5pm
